Several events are planned from Mobile to Pensacola today to honor fallen veterans. Today is the annual Wreaths Across America event. Volunteers lay wreaths at the headstones of veterans and say their names aloud. The video above is from the 2017 event in Mobile.
In Spanish Fort, there will be a wreath laying at the Veterans Cemetery. While this is not technically affiliated with the Wreaths Across America event, organizers say its the first year where their event falls on the same day as the national remembrance. That’s at 10 am on Saturday morning.
In Pensacola, they will place thousands of wreaths this morning at Barrancas National Cemetery. A ceremony will follow at 11 am.
In Mobile, at noon they place wreaths at Mobile National Cemetery.
