Just before the wreaths are placed, US Army Chaplain Amy Noble will bless the wreaths. It is a sacred honor for those that served our nation. See you at 12 noon.

And, for those who aren't religious, it's just an honor rather than a "sacred honor".

When were the wreaths laid? Part of the article says "today" then other parts say
"tomorrow". Did this happen Saturday? Sunday? Monday? or Tuesday?
