Norma Peterson and her daughter Alaina, 5, place a wreath on a headstone at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery, Nov. 30, 2013. More than 1,000 volunteers from the Fort Hood/Killeen, Texas, 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, and will be removed the first Sunday in January.
