Veterans were honored Saturday morning at the Coastal Bend State Veterans Cemetery. Volunteers went around the cemetery and placed holiday wreaths on all the graves, monuments, and columbariums for the Veterans and their families.

The event correlates with the Wreaths Across America initiative that remembers those fallen heroes who have served for our freedom. The event began at 10 a.m. and will conclude at noon.

1875 total grave sites will be among those that will be honored at the event.
