There are numerous headstones in the Jefferson Barracks Military Cemetery with this inscription on them ~ Unknown US Soldier ~ many of them are from as far back as the Civil War. However there are single ones scattered through out the cemetery that are from the different conflicts where we have lost those who have fought for their country.
The Jefferson Barracks Military Cemetery is just about twenty miles south of St. Louis Missouri. I drive by it each week as I go to play golf. Julie and I drove through yesterday, Sunday 5/2712 but they didn’t have the flags on the graves. The Boy Scouts were gathering to do the work and now the cemetery is full of flags. I am hoping tomorrow when I go there they will still be there.
