REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Gateway Blue Star Mothers MO04 (MO0044P)'s Wreaths Across America Page.
Gateway Blue Star Mothers are the proud Location Coordinators for Wreaths Across America at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery.
We have made it our mission to honor and remember as many heroes as possible with a remembrance wreath. This is not possible without the help of you, the families and friends of our heroes at rest at JBNC; as well as the generous support of the Greater St. Louis Community.
YOU can help by sponsoring a wreath (or 10!), getting your employer involved to sponsor wreaths or raising money in your community or circle of peers to help place a wreath on every single one of the 188,000 grave-sties at JBNC.
We invite you all to come out for the Wreaths Across America Ceremony and Wreath laying on Saturday, December 19, 2020 at 12:00 PM, at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.
Thank you so much for supporting the Gateway Blue Star Mothers MO04 (MO0044P) and Wreaths Across America!

“Since it was Veteran’s Day, I really thought I’d see flags out on the veterans’ grave sites and there wasn’t, so I got frustrated and mad that our veterans weren’t being honored on Veteran’s Day and I decided to do something about it.”...

Ceremony and Volunteer Information
We are happy that you are willing to help with our Wreath Across America ceremony at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. Please do not forget to register to volunteer! That way you will get all updates about the cemetery itself.
Here are some things to remember about the ceremony:
- Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome.
- Please help ensure that all participants get the opportunity to place a wreath by taking one or two wreaths at a time, placing them, pausing to Say Their Name with honor & respect. This is not a race, it's a mission to honor.
- Please follow the location coordinators instructions on where to place wreaths in the predetermined sections we will be covering, as well as "how" they should be placed.
- We especially appreciate volunteers willing to help clean-up. Please check in with the location coordinator if you are interested in helping with the clean-up.
The most important thing to remember is to have a wonderful experience participating in the ceremony and thank you so much for help Wreaths achieve our mission to remember, honor and teach.
