Wreaths at Staunton's National Cemetery

Wreaths were laid yesterday at National Cemetery on Richmond Road in Staunton at the same time wreaths were being placed at Arlington Cemetery. Virginia Civil Air Patrol members took part as well as those from the community in remembering military members who have sacrificed for our country, and honoring those who currently serve.

The Waynesboro News Virginian reported:
... the wreaths, each adorned with a red ribbon, a U.S. flag and a flag representing each military branch, as well as a POW/MIA flag, were placed. Five were place on tombstones, representing veterans from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. The Merchant Marine and POW/MIA wreaths were placed near the flagpole.
SWACer Frank Green, a member of the Virginia Civil Air Patrol, was pictured on the front page of the NV placing a wreath on a headstone.
