At the end of November, many people are thankful for family. Others are thankful for health. For retired Gen. J.D. Thurman, he is thankful for the act of others to honor the soldiers and their family members buried or interred at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery.
“It is a great tribute to them to pause and honor every one of those graves with a wreath and to let everybody know they’re not forgotten,” Thurman said in a phone interview Wednesday, calling Wreaths For Vets a “noble cause.”
