Mass. Unit Honors Fallen in Wreaths Across America Observance

COVID-19 concerns curtailed Wreaths Across America observations at locations across the U.S. this year, but members of the Massachusetts Wing’s Beverly Composite Squadron donned their winter wear and face masks to help place 300 wreaths at veterans’ gravesites at Walnut Grove Cemetery in Danvers..

Cadets carefully moved through the snow-covered cemetery to find headstones and place the memorial wreaths. Cadet Tech. Sgt. Nicholas Pratt found the experience humbling and said it gives him a broader perspective on life.
