Volunteers honor fallen military with holiday wreaths

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - It's not Memorial Day or Veteran's Day, but still a time to honor the fallen.

Hundreds took part in the national "Wreaths Across America" ceremony on Saturday in Radcliff.

They laid wreaths at the gravesites of those who've served.

Volunteers were out at Kentucky's four state veterans cemeteries, leaning the wreaths up against the headstones.

One man, who served in the Navy, is honoring his brother who passed away last year.

"Freddy ... he's buried just right behind me and just out here to honor him and to honor the other service people and family members that are here," said John Crutcher, who served in the Navy."

Donations help the non-profit buy the wreaths.

There are currently more than 7,800 veterans and dependents buried at state veterans cemeteries.
