Wreaths Across America still needs donations for wreath-laying

The annual tradition of laying wreaths at every grave in Arlington National Cemetery may come up short this year.

The group behind the tradition, Wreaths Across America, says it's $500,000 short of its fundraising goal. That could mean 35,000 graves will be without wreaths.

The organization says the lack of donations is likely because people are giving to other veterans cemeteries across the country.

Each wreath costs $15 and can be sponsored at waastore.com. The wreath laying is this Saturday, Dec. 14.
