WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO SOMETHING THAT WILL HONOR OUR FALLEN SOLDERS? READ THE STORY AND DONATE $15 TO PLACE A WREATH ON A SOLDER'S GRAVE AT ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY.


"The nonprofit responsible for placing wreaths on 230,000 headstones at Arlington National Cemetery expects to be 30,000 wreaths short this year due to a lack of funding.

Wreaths Across America said Wednesday night that it is $450,000 short of reaching its goal for its Tuesday deadline. More than 100 volunteers plan to place the wreaths on individual headstones on Dec. 12, and Wreaths Across America, which is not government sponsored, was supposed to raise $3.45 million to finish the project, The Washington Examiner reported.

The group’s team captain Bre Kingsbury said they are hoping for more donors to step forward before the fundraising deadline. 

Each wreath is $15 and donors can contribute directly at wreathsacrossamerica.org.

“It’s a great way to honor our fallen friends and to pay tribute to them and to make sure that the families of the fallen know that they’re not forgotten, especially at the holidays, but all throughout the year,” Ms. Kingsbury told Fox News.'

THIS POST IS DEDICATED TO MY TWO DAUGHTERS

I remember well when my girls were going up they fought each other like cats.  Let me tell you nothing is worse than three females in one house when one is going into menopause, and the other two are hitting puberty.  Needless to say it got pretty interesting at times.  

However, after the storm blew over, I would sit them down and tell them that one day they would be best of friends.  Of course, this sage advice was met with much eye rolling and "Oh, Mom"s.  

Funny, now that they are in their 30's they are best friends.  Love you both.  

Your Mom
