Saturday, December 16th at 12 p.m. Mountain Home National Cemetery is hosting a "Wreaths Across America" ceremony.

While the entire county was covered in 2014 and 2015, with over 5,000 graves at 28 cemeteries, it cost around $50,000, with much of that coming out of the veterans service office's budget. The two co-founders are descended from soldiers who fought in the Revolutionary War. "Pursuit of that interest led us to spend time exploring the cemetery, and we realized how many USA veterans have service-marked gravesites there representing all wars from the Civil War to Iraq and Afghanistan".

Individuals have ordered wreaths to place in towns like Cushing and Perkins even if ceremonies aren't scheduled for those locations. "We will then go to the other locations to place the rest of the wreaths".

"We are not here to 'decorate graves, '" Worcester added. It was a natural fit for the group's efforts, said member and Wreaths Across America event coordinator Brenda Brophy.
