Saturday was the Wreaths Across America Day, a day to honor the men and women of the armed forces. Once again the local Civil Air Patrol sponsored this event. Individuals gathered at the Greenwood Cemetery for the beautiful ceremony which began promptly at 11 a.m. (nationwide).

I wish to thank our local Civil Air Patrol members for sponsoring this beautiful event. It makes me proud to know that these young men and women will be our future leaders. My escort, to place the Christmas wreath at my husband's gravesite, was a beautiful and gracious young lady, Hannah Rogers. My husband would have been proud to have Hannah honor him. Thank you to not only Hannah Rogers but the other Civil Air Patrol members who were there to escort the families and friends.

May you all have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year.
