Paul Whitmore scans the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery, making sure all grave markers have a wreath during 2016's Wreaths for Vets.

The laying of more than 8,000 wreaths on the graves of veterans at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday.

The annual Wreaths for Vets, a volunteer-driven effort sponsored by the Friends of Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery, will be the site of a ceremony involving military speakers and special live entertainment. The short program will be followed by family members laying wreaths at the graves of their loved ones, and volunteers will then lay wreaths at remaining graves.
