Debbie Austin, Spring Hill, places wreaths in Leavenworth National Cemetery on Dec. 14.  Austin’s son, Shane Austin, was killed in action in Iraq in 2006. As a Gold Star Mom, Debbie helped raise funds for a national project to lay wreaths on the graves of soldiers buried in national cemeteries across America. Last Saturday, Wreaths Across America laid more than 805,000 wreaths on veteran’s graves in all 50 states and at national veteran’s cemeteries on foreign soil.
