Every year as holiday season arrives, over 8,000 wreaths are placed on memorial at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery. The tradition will continue Saturday, November 26, and volunteers are needed to help make it happen.

The public is invited to join the Friends of the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery at the Killeen Convention Center, 3601 South W S Young Drive in Killeen, at 8AM for the morning lineup.

An escort destined for the cemetery at 11463 State Highway 195 will leave at 8:40AM, and the wreath laying ceremony will begin at 10AM.

Coffee and breakfast tacos will be available with a donation.
