Gov. Sandoval Participates in 'Wreaths Across America'

Posted: Updated:

Governor Brian Sandoval, local students and the "Battle Born Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution" participated in "Wreaths Across America" in Carson City.

Students from Saint Teresa's school helped the governor display the wreath in front of state capitol building Monday.

The event is meant to honor our veterans, particular now -- four days away from a historic event in America's history.

"This Friday is the 71st anniversary of Pearl Harbor and again, it's an important time as Nevadans to honor the men and women of the military, to honor the lives that we lost at Pearl Harbor," says Gov. Sandoval.

Sandra Zboinski adds, "It's important to remember our history, if we fail to remember our history, we are doomed to repeat it so we honor the veterans that have sacrificed, and we remember them."

Similar events happened in state capitals and veterans cemeteries all across the nation today.
