As the holiday season gets underway, let's not forget about those that gave all for our freedom. The Friends of the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery will lay more than 6,000 holiday wreaths at the veterans cemetery this year. The public is invited to participate in the annual Wreath Project.

Volunteers are needed to prepare the wreaths Saturday, November 21, at 10 a.m. at the Killeen Special Events Center, 3301 S. W.S. Young Drive.

Volunteers will also be needed at the wreath laying ceremony Saturday, November 28, at 10 a.m. at the veterans cemetery, located at 11463 State Highway 195.
