With help from local resident Kim Locus, left, State Rep. Todd Hunter places a commemorative military wreath at Royal Palm Cemetery in Port Aransas on Dec. 17. In the background are Port Aransas police officers who also took art in the ceremony. It was all part of National Wreaths Across America Day in which wreaths are laid on the graves of veterans at cemeteries all over the country. The event in Port Aransas was sponsored by the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Moore-McDonald VFW/ Auxiliary Post 8967. Citizens participated in the ceremony by placing wreaths on their veteran relatives’ graves. Locus and her husband, John, were the coordinators of the Port Aransas event.
