Laying of the Wreath ceremony
Veterans were honored with a Holiday Wreath laying ceremony Saturday, hosted by the Barrancas National cemetery.
It's all for a National event called "Wreath Across America," honoring Veterans from each branch of the military.
It's a tradition that hits close to home for many locals, as wreaths were laid at Veterans' cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states.

The wreaths were donated by the Worcester Wreath Company.
