(KTVI) – Jefferons Barracks National Cemetery is running out of room.  That’s why St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley supports plans to expand.

The St. Louis Beacon reports Dooley is willing to hand over the 70-acre “Sylvan Springs Park” in South St. Louis County to the federal government.

Officials think the cemetery will run out of room by 2025.
