Members of the AMVETS Post 45 Honor Guard bow their heads in prayer during a wreath-laying ceremony on the Village Green in Salem at the corner of East State Street and Lincoln Avenue Saturday morning as the snow began to fall. The event was held to coincide with Wreaths Across America, when a convoy of wreaths was to arrive at Arlington National Cemetery to decorate the graves in honor of veterans for the Christmas holiday. Salem Mayor John Berlin placed the wreath and Pastor Alan Smearsoll of Emmanuel Lutheran Church offered the prayer. The Salem Memorial & Patriotic Association organized the ceremony, with wreaths also laid at the veterans' memorials at Hope Cemetery and Grandview Cemetery. (Salem News photo by Mary Ann Greier)
