Residents are invited to place red ribbons on the graves of armed services members Friday afternoon at the Kerrville National Cemetery.

At 4:30 p.m. Friday, the Republican Women of Kerr County, through the Caring for America committee, will have volunteers placing red velvet ribbons at each grave at the cemetery in honor of Veterans Day.

"Anyone wanting to help place these ribbons is more than welcomed," states a press release from the RWKC.

There will be a short ceremony before the placing of the ribbons. Everyone is invited to attend. Some chairs will be provided for those who have trouble standing. 

The Cemetery is on Spur 100 just off Highway 27, East of the Kerrville VA Medical Center.

For more information, contact Peggy Schmidt at or call 830-895-0057 if you would like additional information.
