20 Dec Wreathes Across America – An amazing sight
This years’ laying of the wreathes, on the graves of those who fought to defend our rights and county, was absolutely incredible.
Almost 9,000 wreathes packed into Pepsi Cola trucks were escorted to the cemetery by a brigade of over 150 veterans on motorcycles. Volunteers from the Civil Air Patrol unloaded and distributed them. Literally hundreds of volunteers, more than I could count, went to work. It was a sight to see and a joyous occasion.
Last year about 3,600 wreathes were laid. The event is growing. With the good will of Beaufort and its citizenry, it will grow even more next year.
Thanks to all who came out for this special annual event in Beaufort.
