The 2nd Annual "Laying of the Wreaths" ceremony will be held in the CB State Veterans Cemetery on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 11:00 a.m. The ceremony, hosted locally by the Coastal Bend State Veterans Cemetery and the Veterans Band of Corpus Christi, is part of a larger ceremony honoring fallen veterans nationwide, known as Wreaths Across America.

"If we honor and respect our veterans every day, then please attend this important ceremony to let our community know that we have not forgotten of our deceased heroes," states Ram Chavez, director of the Veterans Band of Corpus Christi.

The Coastal Bend State Veterans Cemetery was dedicated on December 7, 2011 and the first military funeral was on December 13, 2011.
