Fallen Veterans Honored With Wreath Ceremony in Little Falls Cemetery [VIDEO]

 

LITTLE FALLS – Hundreds of volunteers and families gathered at the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery┬áto honor fallen veterans with a wreath laying ceremony.

Wreaths For The Fallen, a Minnesota non-profit organization hosted the ceremony. The group first started laying wreaths in 2006, when five were placed in the cemetery. Over the years, the number of wreaths has grown well over 3,000.

The wreaths are from around Minnesota. Families are able to request a specific wreath to be placed on a loved ones grave on the organizations website.

John Thomas is the President of the organization, he says every grave in the cemetery was covered by a wreath to honor all veterans who fell for our country.

“The goal and mission of Wreaths For The Fallen is to honor all of our countries fallen veterans,” Thomas says.

It was an amazing sight to see as every grave in the cemetery was covered with a wreath by a veteran or family member. Diann Bates, a member of the Minnesota Patriot Guard was at the event, she says it’s a beautiful way to honor those who fought for our freedom.

“These people gave their all for this, and because of it we have our freedom,” Bates says.
