EUGENE, Ore. -- The Wreaths Across America group began selling wreaths at the Wal-Mart on West 11th Avenue on Saturday. 

The wreaths are sold to honor veterans and all men and women who have served this country.

The wreaths are distributed across the country to cemeteries and placed on veterans' gravestones.

Chrissy Rosenau is a Senior Member of Civil Air Patrol said this event is a special way to honor those who have fought for this country.

"It's very important that we ground these people and make them real because they were real," said Roesnau. "They have real life. You know they lived sometimes very harshly in the military and they went through great huge ordeal and then they came back home and were misunderstood or mistreated."
