Heartwarming: Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas participates in wreath laying at Arlington National Cemetery

Journalist Emily Miller posted a photo of herself with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas at Arlington National Cemetery, noting that Thomas was there to lay wreaths.

"Love how Justice Clarence Thomas quietly lays wreaths with all the other volunteers every year at Arlington National Cemetery for #wreathsacrossamerica to honor those who have the ultimate sacrifice," Miller tweeted, adding in another tweet that Thomas takes part to "honor the fallen and spend time supporting Gold Star families at Arlington."

Miller noted that Thomas was not aware that she had posted the photo of him online. "He has no idea I posted this. I've been doing this with him for years," she tweeted.

"We were in the same group that is organized every year by a veteran named Frank," Miller wrote in a piece about the photo and Thomas's participation in the annual event. "The only people I’ve seen figure out who Justice Thomas really is during these events are the Gold Star family members he talks to honor and support them privately," she wrote. "Know that his top-notch security detail was there and blended in well with the crowds."

Miller highlighted a photo that she had posted in 2016 that also showed Thomas at the wreath laying, though in that tweet, she had not drawn attention to the fact that Thomas appeared in the photo.

Thomas, 74, is currently the longest-serving and oldest justice sitting on the nine-member high court — he was nominated by Republican President George H.W. Bush and has served since 1991.

The wreathsacrossamerica.org website notes that, "Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 3,400 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad."
