Women Veterans of Southwest Missouri American Legion Post 1214 recently held an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast with proceeds benefiting the Itus Virtus Wreaths for Fallen Heroes program in Springfield, Mo. Over $1,000 was raised by the post. The Wreaths for Fallen Heroes program was started in late 2015 and was designed to help raise money to purchase wreaths for the headstones of our fallen heroes during the holiday season. The group's goal each year is to place wreaths on every veteran headstone at both the Missouri State Veterans Cemetery and the Springfield National Cemetery. That's over 6,000 wreaths. Each year, Itus Virtus gets closer and closer to realizing this goal.
