RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Remember. Honor. Teach.  That's the purpose of a national movement that came to the Midlands Saturday.

Through Wreaths Across America, fallen veterans are honored with wreath laying ceremonies across the country.

One of those ceremonies was held at Fort Jackson National Cemetery Saturday afternoon.  This is the 4th year of the event in the midlands. 

Surviving members of the military, families and volunteers placed wreaths at the graves of each service member buried in the cemetery.
