The wreaths for the Wreaths Across America ceremony have arrived at the Missouri Veterans Cemetery in Bloomfield. The 2,900 wreaths were trucked in by Buchheit Logistics from Maine. When Buchheit delivers the wreaths only drivers who are military veterans are assigned to the load. This year the driver was Army veteran Chris Welker. The route also included stops in Illinois and Perryville. The Wreaths Across America Ceremony will be at the Missouri Veterans Cemetery in Bloomfield on Saturday, December 14 at 11 a.m. A wreath will be placed at each headstone and at the bottom of each column of the committal shelter walls.
