This weekend volunteers with Wreaths Across America will continue their visits to Arlington National and cemeteries across the country to lay wreaths before the headstones of fallen veterans.
Each wreath costs about $15 to produce and ship, and the effort is powered almost exclusively by individual contributions and volunteers.
So far, VoteVets has raised almost $12,000 towards that effort. First thing in the morning, they hope to write a $30,000 check to Wreaths Across America to cover the cost of 2,000 wreaths.
I’ll announce the final tally during the next airing of my MSNBC program, Taking the Hill this Sunday, December 14th at 1:30 on MSNBC.
Thanks for contributing to make this program an annual success.
