Organization asking for donations to lay wreaths on soldiers' graves

(KMOV.com) -- 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 means about 35,000 fewer wreaths.

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

Each wreath is $15 and can be sponsored at waastore.com 

The wreath laying is this Saturday.
