Rediscovered Discs Honoring Veterans Find New Home

ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Hundreds of bronze discs honoring service
members who died during World War I have a new home.

They are now on display at various locations at Jefferson Barracks Park in south St. Louis County, including the World War I exhibit, Visitor's Center and Powder Magazine Museum.

The discs were recently rediscovered in boxes in the basement of Soldier's Memorial in downtown St. Louis. It's possible their new location could become their permanent home.

The discs had been pulled from their places of honor in north St. Louis to make way for a street widening in the 1980s.

The discs are owned by American Legion Post 15 in St. Louis.
