The residents of Moultrie came together Thursday morning for a wreath laying ceremony to celebrate Independence Day.

The Daughters of the American Revolution worked for quite some time to put this program together.

FOX 31 spoke to several veterans who attended the ceremony and said its important, even 200+ years later, to celebrate this day.

They said this country is their passion and its important for them to teach especially the younger generation what it means to be American.
