WHPThumbnail

Fort Indiantown Gap held its own Wreaths Across America ceremony, Saturday.

Usually about eight to 10 thousand people attend the ceremony, helping place all of the wreaths.

They had about 30,000 wreaths to places on veterans' graves.

For some, this is an annual tradition.

Juscin Ray takes his boy scout troop to the ceremony every year.

"[I] show my patriotism to show I have utmost respect for our fallen military and our current military," said Ray, Scout Master for Troop 268 in Millersville. "We can't do the things we do without the sacrifices of the people that came before us."

Saturday's event is part of a national observance of Wreaths Across America Day.

Americans placed wreaths at more than 1,400 locations, including Arlington National Cemetery.
