Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was spotted over the weekend laying wreaths to honor America’s fallen heroes at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

“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,” journalist Emily Miller wrote on Twitter.

“Justice Clarence Thomas does #WreathsAcrossAmerica [to] honor the fallen and spend time supporting Gold Star families at Arlington,” she added. “Show respect for those of them reading this thread in your replies.

Miller posted a video, noting that Thomas was there with his wife hoping not to be noticed.

“You’ll see Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas doing #WreathsAcrossAmerica without being recognized (look behind me at the beginning),” Miller wrote.

According to the volunteer group’s website, Wreaths Across America carries out “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.”

“While coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies each December on National Wreaths Across America Day is a big part of what we do, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out throughout the year,” the group added. “From our Remembrance Tree program to the Wreaths Across America Museum in Maine, there are many different ways in which you can get involved.”

The annual wreath-laying tradition began in 1992 by Maine businessman Morrill Worcester, who had a surplus of wreaths that Christmas season. He arranged to place some of the wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery, and the rest is history.

Thomas, 74, garnered praise online for volunteering to help in the cold weather.

“This is wonderful, Emily. I can’t think of a person who embodies the spirit of this country more than Justice Thomas,” said Jarrett Stepman of the Claremont Institute. “Great man, and greatest living American.”

“Justice Thomas is a national treasure!” Newsmax writer Michael Dorstewitz tweeted.

“Justice Thomas continues to inspire,” former U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler, a Republican from Georgia, tweeted. “May God bless him and our fallen heroes.”
