Volunteers are once again gearing up for Wreaths Across America.
The goal is to lay a Christmas wreath on the grave of every service member who served our country with honor at the more than 1,600 national cemeteries across the country.
Locally, the chapter of the Civil Air Patrol is coordinating wreaths across America for the Bakersfield National Cemetery this year and they say they still need around 750 wreaths for gravesites there.
The deadline to purchase a wreath to honor a hero is Monday by midnight.
You can purchase a $15 wreath online by going to their website at this link.
