The sky was clear blue, the wind was calm, and the sun warmed the any volunteers who came for the laying of wreaths at the Fort Stanton Military Ceremony on December 15th. More than 50 men, women, and children arrived from Lincoln & Otero Counties.
Among those volunteering were families, relatives of those buried inthe cemetery, Spencer Theater ushers, and people visiting the cemetery for the first time. Wreaths were placed at the entry obelisk to represent the army, navy, marines, air force, coast guard, and merchant marines. Dennis Metz played TAPS, Marilyn Orr led volunteers in singing America the Beautiful, then 300 wreaths were laid on the graves of the veterans. Wreaths were also placed on the graves of veterans buried at Fort Stanton, and family members collected wreaths to be laid on the veterans’ graves in other cemeteries in Lincoln County.
This project is part of the national “Wreaths Across America”
program and as part of that tradition, the wreaths will stay on the graves until the end of January 2019.
A special thanks needs to go to Don Fowler for his continued
support in handling the finances of this project.
Due to the generosity of the people of Lincoln County this tradition was a success and will continue in the years to come.
