In December, Cadets Connor Campbell (Hoover resident), Jared and Brianna Fuchs and Nathan Ruiz of the Bessemer Civil Air Patrol, assisted Gov. Robert Bentley in placing a wreath at the Veterans’ Memorial during a beautiful ceremony at the Capitol building in Montgomery. These cadets participated in Wreaths Across America by selling wreaths to decorate all the graves at the Alabama National Cemetery in Montevallo. They assisted in placing 3,100 wreaths on the graves along with the rest of their squadron, numerous Veteran families and other community groups. Photo courtesy of Sherri Fuchs.
