Posted: Updated:

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama is participating with other states in the Wreaths Across America program to honor veterans and their families.

Gov. Robert Bentley will join other state officials along with veterans and their families for a wreath-laying ceremony at 10:30 a.m. Monday at the state Capitol auditorium.

Officials in other states and in Washington will hold ceremonies at the same time Monday. The state Department of Veterans Affairs says the ceremonies promote a week-long celebration of veterans and their families.

Then on Dec. 15, groups will place wreaths on more than 1,700 graves at the Alabama National Cemetery in Montevallo.
