CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Last Saturday, Dec. 17, residents gathered in cemeteries throughout the city to lay wreaths upon the graves of the fallen as part of the nationwide Wreaths Across America event.
Each December, more than 3,400 locations across all 50 U.S. states take part in laying wreaths on the graves of soldiers and veterans to honor them during the holiday season.
The mission of this event is to remember, honor, and teach about the history of the United States as well as those who have served to protect this nation.
There were five events throughout the City of Cheyenne, and the photos below are from the event at Mount Olivet Cemetery.
