On Saturday, Dec. 14, large crowds turned out for VA-sponsored wreath-laying event at the South Florida National Cemetery to honor the fallen, those serving and their families for the holidays. Hundreds of wreaths were placed carefully at grave markers by families, veterans, scouts, JROTC units and other community members. Each volunteer was instructed to place the wreath at the marker leaving the name visible, then to read the name on each marker and observe a moment of silence. Across America, two million wreaths were placed at national cemeteries. The Royal Palm Beach High School Navy JROTC members participated in this event with many other community organizations.
