WALLA WALLA -- The Twin W Composite Squadron Civil Air Patrol will conduct a Wreaths Across America ceremony Saturday at 9 a.m. at Mountain View Cemetery.
Seven ceremonial wreaths for the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine and POW/MIA will be placed to remember those who served.
The local ceremony will be among more than 400 nationwide held simultaneously.
In addition to the ceremonial wreaths, individual wreaths may be sponsored and will be placed on veterans' graves in designated sections by volunteers. Each year, the sections will be rotated to assure that all veterans will eventually be included.
For more information about sponsoring a wreath, call Ted Hanson at 509-386-6509 or go to www.wreathsacrossamerica.org.
