RENO, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – Navy Veteran Tom Draughon explains how 10,000 wreaths made their way to the Fernley Veterans Cemetery on Wednesday, December 14, 2022.
“There were at least a minimum of 200 people maybe more, took about 35-minutes to unload both those trucks which is astronomical,” says Draughon. “It is great to see that many people show up.”
However, organizers of this year’s “Wreaths Across America” said they want ten times that many people come to the Veterans Cemetery on Saturday, December 17, 2022, to lay these wreaths on the more than 10,000 graves.
“They are stacked here behind me, some over in the front and around all the various places so people can get them easily,” says Draughon. “On Saturday at nine o’clock in the morning.”
