The annual Wreaths Across America ceremony took place before a large standing room only crowd at the Missouri Veterans Cemetery at Bloomfield. A Christmas Wreath was laid at each headstone and at each column on the committal shelter walls. A wreath is presented during the ceremony by veterans of the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines and those listed as Missing in Action or Prisoners of War. Each wreath is placed in honor of the veterans in each branch of the military.
