FERNLEY, Nev. - Thousands of deceased veterans in Nevada and across the nation will be honored through ceremonies on Saturday.

Wreaths Across America involves holiday wreaths being placed at the gravesites of veterans at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley, and the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Boulder City, said Charles Pullen, public information officer at the state Department of Veterans Services.

"So it's really just a moment in time at Christmas and the holidays," he said, "for these people who really want to take an extra step in remembering veterans, their contribution, and their family's contribution."

Pullen said the nonprofit Wreaths Across America was developed on the idea to "Remember, Honor, Teach" by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies in all 50 states.

This is the first year in which there are enough wreaths to cover all 5,400 graves at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Pullen said. Nevada's population of veterans, about 300,000 people, has a history of honoring those who already have passed, he said.

"We have a very, very active veterans population," he said, "a lot of veteran advocates in support of veterans' issues."

Pullen said Wreaths Across America is fully funded through donations and staffed with volunteers across the nation.
