BLOOMFIELD, MO (KFVS) - The Missouri State Veterans Cemetery at Bloomfield is again participating in the annual Wreaths Across America program.

A holiday wreath-laying ceremony to honor and remember our nation’s veterans will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15 at the Bloomfield State Veterans Cemetery. More than 2,800 wreaths will be placed on headstones and in front of the columbarium wall.

The cemetery has participated in the program for 13 years by placing a wreath on the grave of a member from each branch of service and a former Prisoner of War.

A wreath will be placed on every grave this year due to fund raising efforts.
