This is what I found on WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

As Todd Raffensberger and his family walked by the graves at Arlington National Cemetery on a wet and foggy Saturday morning, they took a moment to pay special attention to one marked with the name Cole Spennati. They saw that a wreath was on the soldier’s grave, reverently placed by a volunteer.

The Raffensberger family was among 38,000 people who laid wreaths on headstones today at Arlington, according to Wreaths Across America, which each year holds the event at Arlington and at military cemeteries nationwide. Throughout the United States, some 3 million people volunteered to lay more than 2.2 million wreaths at 2,100 locations.

At Arlington, the Raffensbergers and others visited Section 60, where many who were killed in Afghanistan and Iraq are buried. While some of the visitors did not know the men and women they honored, the Raffensbergers have a connection to Spennati, who was their son’s classmate back home in Mount Union, Pennsylvania.
