ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - Thirty-two forgotten veterans from across Missouri will receive final honors starting Wednesday at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. The "Missing in America Project," helped track down the remains of the veterans that went unclaimed.  Ten cremated remains had been stored at the Odd Fellows Lodge in Washington, Missouri.

Those veterans will get a funeral procession today from Washington to Jefferson Barracks, and there will be a second service with full Military Honors tomorrow for the other veterans located and identified.
