An event took place Saturday to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

The "Wreaths Across America" event came to Beckley for the first time. It was held at the Blue Ridge Funeral Home and Memorial Garden. It is a national event and organizers want to hold it in Beckley every year.

It honors those who have been killed in action.

"Wreaths Across America gives us another time, especially during the holidays, that we can honor all of the fallen who have been in the armed services," said Linda Sumner, House of Delegates, 27th District.

A pledge of allegiance and prayer took place at the event.
