A 15 minute drive from the FF, Fenton, Mo (St. Louis), is a most "Humbling experience".  A visit to Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery.  Today, I took that drive from the FF, and would recommend the experience to all.  I do not know how many "Hero's", are buried here, these are the people who paid the ultimate price so I can travel each week and enjoy freedom. I know we have many people on this site that are Veterans, and I so greatly enjoy the contributions of two for sure, SS and NUHusker
