WEST POINT – Hundreds of volunteers honored the heroic service of fallen soldiers by laying wreaths at all 7,004 graves in the cemetery at the United States Military Academy at West Point last Saturday, Dec. 2.

Through its Community Investment Committee (CIC), O&R fielded a volunteer team and donated $5,000 to the eighth annual Wreaths at West Point observance, a local project affiliated with the Wreaths Across America program.

West Point’s cemetery is one of nearly 1,100 veterans’ cemeteries across the nation that placed over 1.2 million wreaths in 2016, including 248,000 wreaths on the graves at Arlington National Cemetery.
