Charity Needs Help to Decorate Headstones of Fallen Heroes with Wreaths

The executive director of Wreaths Across America, Karen Worcester, joined Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Monday to discuss National Wreaths Across America Day, which is December 17, and to explain how people may get involved to help the deeply patriotic organization. She also thanked Breitbart News readers and listeners for being “instrumental” in helping the group meet its goal of placing a wreath on every headstone at Arlington National Cemetery last year.
