Honoring fallen veterans - at the parsons cemetery.
Families - veterans - and even city officials - came out and laid wreaths - as part of the national wreaths across america.
47 abc's camila fernandez - went out this morning - and has more on the meaning behind this annual tradition.
Natural sound of bag pipes track 1 on saturday - parsons cemetary was filled with over 800 wreaths - to honor our fallen veterans - as part of the national - wreaths across america day.
This is a big moment because so many people served this country that came to this community - and not a lot of people recognize that or realize that.
Buttsot rain or shine - hundreds of people in the community came out this morning - to lay a wreath at graves just like this one - where a green flag represents a fallen service member.
Buttsot people tend to forget what veterans have done, their commitment and service to our country, so it's an opportunity for people to gather and say to veterans, thank you very much for your service.
Natural sound of last post bugle call track 2 military family members - like cheryl west - honored her stepfather - by putting up flowers and a wreath - to remember his service in the u.s. navy - and his love for the community.
Ossman, thank you for your service.
Buttsot he talked about his service - mount hermon lions club - and the republican club - and helping at church - very active at church - very active - anytime anybody needed a hand - he was there to help them - and that's what i remember about him being so special.
Track 3 as an active service member - mayor jake day tells 47abc - this annual ceremony is a chance for the community - to recognize the sacrifices made by our veterans and their families.
It's that individual sacrifice - that individual choice to serve that is so powerful - and so this day - and seeing the service of hundreds of volunteers being willing to brave the rain and get out there - it touches me on a personal level.
Track 4 and veterans say - they hope these wreaths - will help to make sure - no hero is ever forgetten.
Camila fernandez, 47abc.
We're told the ceremony was mostly organized by volunteers such as operation we care - and
