The Wreaths Across America will take place this Saturday at Llano Cemetery and all across the United States of America.  They are among over 1,000 cemeteries in the country participating.

Wreaths Across America Day is a day to Remember, Honor, and Teach.  Wreaths are laid to remember our Veterans and the sacrifice they have made and as each wreath is laid the name of the Veteran is said out loud.

This year over 400 wreaths have been placed in Llano Cemetery.  You are invited to join the Amarillo Tigershark Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol, among several Veteran's Groups here in Amarillo as they honor those fallen Veterans this Saturday, December 17th from 11am - 12n.

The ceremony will take place in Llano East at the Field of Valor.
