Let’s look a few months down the road.

This December, fallen veterans will be honored once again with wreaths at their grave markers in cemeteries around the country on National Wreaths Across America Day.

In this area, the remembrance is known as Wreaths Across Chattanooga.

This year, it takes place on Saturday, December 17th - but the planning and preparation, especially getting the word out, begins months in advance.

Mickey McCamish - a retired U.S. Navy Captain - is president of Wreaths Across Chattanooga.
