World War I Memorial Court of Honor

This World War I Memorial was dedicated on September 30, 2012, which coincides with Gold Star Mother’s Day. It was this group of women who in the 1920s sought to honor the sons and daughters who died as a result of World War I. These bronze plaques were embedded in Kingshighway Boulevard, but in the 1980s, they were threatened. The Rollo Calcaterra American Legion Post 15 saved 752 of the original 1,185 plaques. Today, they are installed at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in a permanent memorial that includes the names of the missing plaques.
