A combined Color Guard comprising Plover VFW Post 10262 and the Civil Air Patrol-Stevens Point Composite Squadron braved 15-degree temperatures and a biting wind to conduct military honors for the Wreaths Across America ceremony at the Korean War Memorial in Plover on Saturday, December 16th. 
Fresh evergreen wreaths were placed upon memorial benches and at the base of the statuary by members of the Civil Air Patrol to recognize each branch of service and to symbolize a living tribute. 
The wreath-laying ceremony, held annually at more than 800 cemeteries and memorials nationwide, fulfills a mission to Remember our fallen heroes, Honor those who serve, and Teach our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms. 

Following the ceremony, the wreaths were laid upon the headstones of servicepersons at local cemeteries.
