GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Membership in the Military Order of the Cootie recognizes outstanding service to the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Local veteran, Charles Ackerman, made his way to Washington D.C. to meet other cooties to honor unidentified soldiers who died in combat.
Cooties from all over the United States marched with more than 200 wreaths to place them on the Tomb of the Unknowns.
Ackerman said he plans on going back to Washington D.C. next year to participate in another wreath ceremony.
