The annual Wreaths Across America ceremonies at the two national cemeteries in Salisbury were canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
There are still some wreaths at both locations, mostly placed on individual graves. At the Historic National Cemetery on Government Road, there were a few dozen wreaths placed on a section of the graves.
This year’s wreath sponsorships will be carried to next year’s event. There were ceremonial wreaths honoring military branches placed at both cemeteries.
