ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO. (KPLR) – An early morning snow kept most inside. But for some, they felt a need to be here and say thank you.

Remembering and honoring the men and women who have served this country by placing wreaths on the graves of the fallen.

Wreaths Across America is a national event with more than 800 veteran cemeteries across the U.S. taking part.

500 remembrance wreaths were placed on gravesites at Jefferson Barracks.

But for many, they wish they could place a wreath on every marker, but more money is needed to achieve that goal.
