Veterans in Sioux Falls take part in Wreaths across America

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - Thousands of volunteers joined together in cemeteries across the country to honor America's veterans who have been laid to rest.

For the past 10 years, Hills of Rest Cemetery in Sioux Falls, has been a part of Wreaths of America, which works to place a wreath of remembrance on soldiers gravesites.

"Nearly every grave in Arlington has been marked with wreaths and our graves, we have nearly 1,000 graves marked at Hills of Rest," said Gary Rae.

Volunteers in Sioux Falls and across the country all gathered at the same time Saturday, holding a special ceremony before laying the wreaths on thousands of graves.
