(next to Advance Auto Parts), and east along Sheridan Rd. to the entrance to Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery.

Funeral mass begins at 10:00, so those who would like to show their support to the family by lining the funeral route should do so between 10:15 and 10:30. Please repost for your friends in the St. Louis area that would like to show their support and appreciation for this true American hero.
