Wreath laying ceremony in Killeen

KILLEEN, TX - More than 8,000 wreaths now decorate the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen.

Thousands attended Saturday's wreath laying ceremony.

The tradition began in 2007 when the Wreaths Across America organization sent six wreaths to the cemetery to be laid in honor of each military service branch.

That quickly grew and today every single grave has a beautiful wreath next to it.

The wreaths will be picked up on January 12th.
