Virginia Beach, Va. (WTKR) - NewsChannel 3 is honoring a Virginia Beach veteran with our People Taking Action Award after he took action to help the Horton Wreath Society.

In October, NewsChannel 3 took action and donated $1,000 to the Horton Wreath Society to help them honor our departed veterans this December.

Read about how NewsChannel 3 took action here.

After seeing our story, retired Marine Donald Ross knew he had to take action to help as well. He donated $5,000 to Horton Wreath Society which helped ensure every veteran buried at the Albert G. Horton Memorial Veterans Cemetery will get a wreath on their grave this December.

That action earned Donald Ross Jr. our NewsChannel 3 People Taking Action Award on Veterans Day.
