The men and women who fought for our country are being remembered this holiday season.
The Wreaths for Veterans volunteers placed wreaths around 3,000 veteran grave sites in Huntsville.
Today, they held a ceremony at Valhalla Memory Gardens to honor and remember the veterans who served this country.
Jennifer Hames who planned the event tells WAAY 31 they also placed wreaths at Maple Hill Cemetery.
"A warrior dies twice. Once when he takes his last breath. Once when his name is spoken for the last time. We don't want these veterans to be forgotten so we say their names and say a prayer for them," said Jennifer Hames.
On January 9th and 10th, the group will pick up the wreaths from Valhalla Memory Gardens and Maple Hill Cemetery to restore them for next year.
