After being on the graves at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery, over 7,000 wreaths will be retrieved today beginning at 10 a.m.

Volunteers are needed to help collect the wreaths, place them on poles and load them onto trucks, to be stored until needed later this year.

Parking will be available at Texas A&M University-Central Texas, 1001 Leadership Place, Killeen, with buses shuttling volunteers to the cemetery. Volunteers should dress for cold weather, as the temperatures will be in the 30s during the morning hours.

The cemetery is located at 11463 State Highway 195, Killeen.

I am Marie Landleven by name, currently living in California, USA. I am a widow at the moment with two kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in November and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan firms both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Woman of God a private loan lender who gave me a loan of $20,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mrs Julian Smith He doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about her and also i want God to bless her more.You can contact them through her email:
