On the morning of Dec. 19, Songs of the American Legion Post 293 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9268 held their annual local Wreaths Across America ceremony. The ceremony, which was held at the Native American cemetery on the south end of Cloverdale, was smaller than it has been in year's past (the groups usually hold the event's main ceremony at Cloverdale Cemetery).
Wreaths Across America is a nationwide effort to place wreaths on the graves of veterans. Following Saturday morning's ceremony, members of the Sons of the American Legion headed to Cloverdale Cemetery to place wreaths on the headstones of the veterans buried there.
According to Legion member Al Delsid, approximately 63 wreaths get placed in Cloverdale every year as part of Wreaths Across America.
