BLOOMFIELD, MO (KFVS) -

The Missouri State Veterans Cemetery at Bloomfield participated in the Wreaths Across America Program for a seventh year in a row on Saturday.

A ceremonial wreath was placed on the grave of a member from each branch of service and a former POW.

After the ceremony, wreaths were placed on every grave within the cemetery.

Hundreds came out to remember the fallen and honor those who served.

The program is intended to honor soldiers sacrifice and teach younger generations about the high cost of freedom.
