Rep. Briggs King joined a number of her colleagues recently in participating in the inaugural Wreaths Across America ceremony. The event was held at Legislative Hall on December 8th. This event is part of a national campaign to remember the nation's fallen heroes, honor those who serve, and teach American children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms.

Over 200,000 wreaths will be laid at Arlington National Cemetery on Saturday, December 13th. Similar activities are taking place in all 50 states and overseas. It is anticipated the event will become an annual observation.
