Fallen veterans were honored across the country Saturday as part of National Wreaths Across America day.

Hundreds of locations participated by placing wreaths at veterans’ graves and holding ceremonies.

The Hampton National Cemetery and New Hollywood Cemetery in Elizabeth City, N.C. are two of the local cemeteries that participated.

This is the first year the cemetery in Elizabeth City took part.

With the help of volunteers, they placed the wreaths on more than 500 graves.
