Organization To Honor Fallen At Fort Riley

KSAL StaffDecember 11, 2013

A national organization is coming to Fort Riley to lay a wreath at the post cemetery to honor fallen soldiers.

The event Saturday is part of the Wreaths Across America program that honors soldiers and families of those in uniform, and educates children about the role of the military to protect freedom.

Wreaths Across America placed 406,000 wreaths at graves at 815 locations across the United State and national veterans’ cemeteries in foreign countries. The first ceremony took place in 1992 at Arlington National Cemetery.
