Staff Report

Remembering fallen military, one wreath at a time, volunteers from across the area including Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Security, SOC Los Alamos and local community partners, sponsored holiday wreaths for a military gravesite at the Santa Fe National Cemetery.

The employees also placed wreaths at the annual National Wreaths Across America Day ceremony Saturday at the Santa Fe National Cemetery.

In 2012, LANS employees donated $6,000 to purchase 1,600 wreaths and nearly 50 LANL employee volunteers helped place wreaths at veterans’ gravesites.
