July 25, 2011 - Hundreds of volunteer landscapers are out at Arlington National Cemetery this morning to help beautify the grounds.
This event is put on by Planet, a green organization who says they want this community service project to be a gift to the American people.
Organizer Jerry Grossi says they expect to have about 400 volunteers this morning at Arlington National Cemetery, where they will do approximately $200,000 dollars worth of landscaping work. That includes lyming, mulching, pruning, planting, and installing an irrigation system.
"We're doing a lot of projects that Arlington would normally not do," says Grossi. "These projects are expensive, and we want to donate them to Arlington." The group is donating approximately $200,000 worth of services including liming, planting, and mulching.
Former Army Corporal Jeff McCory volunteered after serving seven tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. "I have a friends who have family buried here, so it's sort of a tribute to them," he says. "You never appreciate life until the option of it not being there is in front of you."
