The annual Wreaths across America event was held Dec. 14 at the Fayetteville Cemetery, where Civil Air Patrol cadets and members of the public placed wreaths on the graves of veterans as a way to honor their service.

“The ceremony is sponsored jointly by the Civil Air Patrol’s Peachtree City Falcon Field Composite Squadron and the American Legion Fayetteville Post 105,” said local Civil Air Patrol Lt. Col. Joel Seidband.

Also participating were the Sons of the American Revolution, performing a Colonial Musket Salute, and the Boy Scouts of America.

“This is but one way that we can honor those who have given so much for our nation. It is also a great way to bridge the gap for our young people who may not fully understand the depth of the sacrifices veterans have made to ensure the freedom of every American,” said Siedband.

The Wreaths across America organization is dedicated to honoring and thanking veterans for their service and sacrifice.
