Lois Adams chats with her son, Gregory, over the headstone of her husband, former Command Sgt. Maj. Samual Adams, after placing a Christmas wreath on it, at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery Nov. 30, 2013. More than 1,000 volunteers from the Fort Hood/Killeen area joined family members of the fallen to place more than 5,000 wreaths on the grave markers at the cemetery. The event is organized by the Friends of the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery and is in its eighth year. The wreaths will remain on the markers through the holiday season, to be removed the first Sunday in January.
