CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – Hundreds of volunteers came out Saturday morning for the Wreaths Across America ceremonies.

There were two ceremonies, one in Charlotte and one in Matthews.

Our Larry Sprinkle participated in the ceremony at Forest Lawn Cemetery East.

Volunteers spent the day at both locations laying wreaths at the graves of fallen heroes and reading their names aloud.

Organizers say events like these are important.

“Wreaths Across America means to our country that they are not forgotten,” said Karen Reardon of Wreaths Across America. “It was founded to honor those who served in the past and serve now.”
