Wreath ceremony honors veterans

Posted: Tuesday, December 30, 2014 12:00 am

A well-attended ceremony coordinated by the Civil Air Patrol was held at the Kerrville National Cemetery at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 13. Similar ceremonies took place at veterans cemeteries across America, each timed to coincide with one held at Arlington National Cemetery at 12 noon. Several organizations in Kerrville got involved in raising awareness of this project and, thanks to the generosity, support and efforts of many Kerrville residents, for the first time, the Kerrville National Cemetery had a full complement of fresh green wreaths for each veterans grave.  Wreaths will be out until the first of January.

Organizations that worked to support this project locally with the Civil Air Patrol include Kerr County Women’s Chamber, EAA Chapter 747, Sons of the Republic of Texas, and the Republican Women of Kerr County. The PA system was donated by the EAA Chapter 747 and the generator was donated by Five Star Rental on Medina Hwy.
