Texoma Cadets Honor Fallen Heroes

The Wichita Falls Civil Air Patrol squadron held a wreath laying ceremony at the Eastview Cemetery in Vernon Saturday.  The event coincided with nearly 500 similar ceremonies across the country.

CAP cadets laid around 150 wreaths on individual graves of veterans from all services. They also observed a moment of silence that coincided with a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier.

This is the first year the Wichita Falls cadets participated.
