Atlanta (WAOK / AJC) — Grave sites at the Marietta National Cemetery will be adorned with wreaths on Saturday as a part of the national Wreaths Across America program, established to honor veterans.

Volunteers with the program will place 3,000 wreaths on grave sites at the cemetery located at 500 Washington Ave after the ceremony. Wreaths will also be placed at the Marietta Confederate Cemetery, after a speech by Dr. Mike Shaffer at Brown Park, 358 West Atlanta St.
