Despite a very dismal weather day in Brevard County,
the Wreaths Across America event at Cape Canaveral National Cemetery, on Sat., Dec. 15th., was a tremendous success!!
A huge crowd made their way from the out-lying parking areas, to the center of the activities, to witness the delivery of the MANY wreaths by a large semi truck, escorted by the Patriot Guard Riders…very inspirational…!! There was the Presentation of the Colors, several talks by military dignitaries, and the singing of the National Anthem by a sweet teenage girl, delivery of the Special Commemorative Wreaths by a horse drawn carriage, and Taps to end the program. All this, during a nagging drizzle, which thankfully ended as the folks began placing the wreaths on the graves.
I saw many tears among the participants, but I believe for many, it brought at least SOME closure…GOD bless our military…both living, and those who have crossed over…this is truly a very inspirational event…
