Today is Wreaths Across America. Wreaths were purchased (from donations) and laid at gravesites in National Cemetery’s across this great nation. I and many other volunteers got the honor of placing wreaths at the Great Lakes National Cemetery. Over 11,000 wreaths were placed today in Holly.

There was a touching ceremony after wreaths were put in place, with Sheriff Bouchard, Capt. Rich Luterman USAF (ret), LTC A Rocky Raczkowski US Army and several others.
