Several St. Louis area residents are featured, namely Sergeant First Class Charles F. Prevedel and 1Lt. Michael J. Blassie, who were MIA for a significant period before being discovered and honored among the fallen. U.S. Air Force A-37 pilot Lt. Blassie's remains were interred in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from the Vietnam War from 1984 until 1998, when they were identified and transferred to Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery near his St. Louis home.
If you are in the St. Louis area, visit the exhibit and then give a hearty "Thank You" to veterans you know or meet in the future.
