(KFVS) - American Legion Riders from Cape Girardeau and Jackson set up wreaths at the entrances of six cemeteries Sunday.

This is the sixth year that the American Legion chapter has set up the four foot wreaths in honor of veterans who fought in the military but aren't buried in a national cemetery.

The cemeteries visited were Old Lorimer, New Lorimer, Cape Memorial Park, Russell Heights, Jackson City, and St. Mary's Cemetery.
