TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; On Saturday, Dec. 10, several cadet and senior members of the Civil Air Patrol Tahoe Truckee Squadron traveled to the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley, Nev. to participate in the Wreaths Across America Ceremony.

The event honors our nation’s fallen soldiers with a wreath placed on each gravesite. Through the generosity of the Truckee community, the cadets also raised more than $1,000 to help support the event.
