Residents of the New Milford area gathered Dec. 16 at Center Cemetery in New Milford to place wreaths on veterans’ graves. The annual project, Remembering Our Veterans, is coordinated by Jean Mariano, and held in conjunction with Wreaths Across America. Mariano’s son, Jason D. Lewis, was a U.S. Navy Seal who died July 6, 2007, in Iraq. He is buried in Center Cemetery. This year, more than 750 wreaths were placed at the cemetery.
