On a cool and clear Saturday afternoon, members of the American Legion Post 541 met at the Pikeville Cemetery to honor our military veterans by placing a wreath on their graves. The event was a part of the annual effort by Wreaths Across American. The ceremony opened with a prayer followed by the posting of the colors by members of the Honor Guard from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. Several town officials from Pikeville and Wayne County Commissioner Wayne Aycock made a few comments at the event. After the brief ceremony, members of Post 541 and volunteers placed over 180 wreaths on the veteran graves.
