KENS CARES: Honor veterans at national cemetery with remembrance wreaths

Wreaths Across America aims to lay a wreath on every grave and say the name of each veteran aloud.

SAN ANTONIO — Wreaths Across America will remember and honor our veterans on Saturday, December 19, through the laying of remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery.

There are more than 169,000 headstones at this national cemetery, and the goal is to raise enough money to lay a wreath on every grave and say the name of each veteran aloud.
