Veterans Home to host wreath-laying ceremony on December 16

Wintersville American Legion honors veterans in special way for holidays

Members of the Armed Forces will place remembrance wreaths for each branch of the military, as well as one for POW/MIAs and KIAs.

The local National Remembrance Day Ceremony will be held on at 11 a.m. December 16 on the grounds of the Northeast Louisiana Veterans' Cemetery, just south of Rayville on Highway 425.

This is the second year the cemetery will be an official location, joining with Children of the American Revolution.

Wreaths Across America of Bay County raised more than $16,000 to lay wreaths this season.

Jackie Reyes, administrative officer for the Houston National Cemetery, said the organization usually gets all 76,000 grave sites covered with wreaths that donors can sponsor for $15.

The dedication of veterans and their service to our country is remembered each holiday season through the national Wreaths Across America program, which will be marked Saturday at the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery.

Charette wrote "I'm an American" in 2002 to help kids appreciate the sacrifices women and men have made in protecting the American freedoms that we all enjoy.

The cemetery, which is exclusively for veterans and their families, will host a Wreaths Across America event on Saturday. "We're here to remember ... their lives".

"Two years ago, my father, who is a veteran, took me down to Arlington to participate in Wreaths Across America, and I was very moved by the experience", said Swoboda, who is now a senior at the Tome School.

People who wish to volunteer to help lay and/or remove the wreaths can contact Arlington National Cemetery Tours by clicking on the link in the Related Links box.
