Veterans honored with 'Wreaths Across America'

Posted: Updated:

For many reasons, the holiday season is often one of reverence and that includes an opportunity to honor those who've served our country and given their lives in its defense.

Hundreds of veterans, family members, and volunteers made their way to the Coastal Bend Veterans Cemetery on Saturday to do just that as part of Wreaths Across America Day.

Wreaths were laid on the graves of veterans to honor their sacrifice, and each volunteer spoke the veterans' names when placing the holiday decor as a small act to keep their memory alive.

The event takes places annually in more than 1,200 locations across the U.S.
