Bruce Williams, a longtime volunteer for Georgia National Cemetery and Wreaths Across America, places a wreath on one of the headstones. About 12,500 wreaths were donated for the project, enough for every grave in the cemetery.

After a careful examination of the weather reports for the next few days, Georgia National Cemetery staff have approved the postponement of the event to pick up wreaths from the cemetery’s graves.

Currently, the forecast for Saturday shows a 100% chance of rain, while the National Weather Service has also stated much of northwest Georgia could see the potential for severe storms, heavy wind gusts and possible tornadoes.

The staff at Georgia National Cemetery have rescheduled the wreath pick-up to Saturday, Jan. 18. The event will begin at 8 a.m.
