MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - The Bismarck Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol has met its goal of raising enough money to place wreaths on each of the more than 5,600 headstones at the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery south of Mandan.

The project is part of a national effort known as Wreaths Across America.

The Civil Air Patrol will sponsor a wreath-placing ceremony on Dec. 12 at the cemetery. The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1QcD8I2 ) reports it will be one of more than 1,000 ceremonies held simultaneously across the country.
