Wreaths Across America Faces Shortfall at Arlington National Cemetery
Every December, Wreaths Across America places wreaths on the graves at Arlington National Cemetery and other veterans cemeteries.
Thousands of volunteers come out to help and show respect to veterans and those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
Jon Scott was joined on "Fox Report" Sunday by Bre Kingsbury, who handles corporate business development and community relations for Wreaths Across America.
With National Wreaths Across America Day on December 15 fast approaching, Kingsbury said they are hoping for more donors and volunteers to step forward.
Kingsbury explained that the wreaths are $15 each and you can sponsor veterans' wreaths at the organization's website.
She noted just how massive an undertaking this is, with 1,500 participating locations across all 50 states.

She said the goal for this year is 1.8 millions wreaths, with 253,000 at Arlington National Cemetery alone.
Kingsbury revealed that they currently project to be 120,000 wreaths short of their goal for Arlington.
"It is so important to us that we are able to honor and remember every one of our fallen veterans buried not only at Arlington but at all 1,500 participating locations," she said.
"It's really a magical day and it's a beautiful day for us to advance our mission to Arlington National Cemetery, to remember, honor and teach our fallen heroes," Kingsbury said. "And it's so that we never forget the families that they left behind."
