CAPT (Ret.) Larry Cotton, USN provided the following report on the Ceremony held at the McCrory Lane State Veteran's Cemetery on 15 December 2018:
"I participated in the Laying of the Wreaths yesterday at the McCrory Lane cemetery--9,370 wreaths which is almost a 100% increase! Still need about 2,000 more next year to cover every grave. The ceremony and wreathlaying still took only about an hour because there were so many volunteers!"
