CCMS Bill Moyer, a United States Air Force veteran, places a wreath Saturday at Alton National Cemetery during the annual Wreaths Across America ceremony. Volunteers went around the cemetery and placed holiday wreaths on all the graves, monuments, and columbariums for the Veterans and their families. WAA San Antonio said it would place pennies on headstones if they ran out of wreaths.
"They were willing at one point in their lives to give their lives for us", said Ken Divens, 17.
On Wreath Across America Day, event volunteers and the general public will join thousands nationwide in placing wreaths on the graves of fallen service men and women.
"It's a great honor for us to be able to do that, to those who served our country", Edwards said.
The tradition began when ME wreath maker Morrill Worcester donated 5,000 wreaths to Arlington Cemetery.
"Last year was a blizzard, I wouldn't trade it for the world", she said. "We are laying these wreaths today to ensure that [our veterans] are remembered, and not just today, but everyday".
The laying of the ceremonial wreaths at all locations coincides with the laying of the ceremonial wreath upon the "Tomb of the Unknowns" at Arlington National Cemetery, also called "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier", with every location holding a moment of silence together in remembrance of those lost.
He attributed that participation to the spirit of camaraderie among local veterans and their families as well as the generosity of community organizations, businesses and individuals eager to show their appreciation of the sacrifice made by service members.
