The Wreaths Across America convoy arrives at Cheverus High School in Portland on Sunday. More than a dozen tractor trailers carrying Maine-made wreaths stopped at the school for a formal ceremony before continuing the annual trek to Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, where the wreaths will be placed on veterans’ graves.

Members of the Maine Knights of Columbus Honor Guard present arms Sunday during a Wreaths Across America ceremony at Cheverus High School in Portland. The ceremony featured a presentation by U.S. Navy veteran Robert Coles – a survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor – and was attended by Gov. Paul LePage and his wife Ann LePage, who is accompanying the convoy of wreath-bearing trucks to Arlington National Cemetery.
