Reserve Marine donates cherry blossom trees to Quantico museum
Reserve Marine donates cherry blossom trees to Quantico museumThe planting of cherry blossom trees originated in 1912 as a gift of friendship to the people of the United States from the people of Japan. In Japan, the flowering cherry blossom tree, or "sakura," is a prized flowering plant. The beauty of the cherry blossom is a potent symbol equated with the evanescence of human life and epitomizes the transformation of Japanese culture throughout the ages, according to the National Park Service. For Lt. Col. Eric Terashima, the assistant chief of staff for operations and future operations with Force Headquarters Group, Marine Forces Reserve, the cherry blossom symbolizes his family’s legacy in America – a legacy of endurance, forgiveness and pride.
