WASHINGTON D.C. (WTVB) - Wreaths Across America, says it is struggling to put a wreath on every grave at Arlington National Cemetery this Christmas season.  The nonprofit group says donations are down, leaving them about 35 thousand wreaths short of their goal. 

Board Chairman Wayne Hanson says every $15 donation will guarantee another wreath will be placed on the grave of a fallen servicemember.
