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-thousand dollars short of its fundraising goal. That means about 35-thousand fewer wreaths.

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

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

The wreath laying is this Saturday, Dec. 14.
