College of the Ozarks will be placing wreaths on over 4,300 grave sites at the Missouri State Veterans Cemetery in Springfield.

On Saturday, faculty, students, and staff will help lay the wreaths and say the names of the soldiers represented by the grave sites.

“The College is honored to join with Wreaths for Fallen Heroes to help remember our Veterans at Christmas,” said Dr. Marci Linson, vice president for patriotic activities and dean of admissions.

Funding for the wreaths will be provided by Pitch in for Patriots
