WLOX Editorial: Saturday help honor those who died serving our country

This is a wonderful time of year. So much hustle and bustle with holiday gift buying, Christmas trees going up and decorations everywhere you look. We suggest you take a little time from your busy holiday schedule this Saturday at 11 am to participate in a very worthy event.

Some 1,800 wreaths have been prepared by volunteers. Now there is a need for more volunteers to lay the wreaths on graves at Biloxi National Cemetery. There will be a short ceremony Saturday at 11am, then the volunteers will place the wreaths.

We encourage those who can to spend some of your time this holiday season honoring those who died serving this country by laying of the wreaths this Saturday at Biloxi National Cemetery.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
