ST. LOUIS – A Gold Star family remembers a fallen U.S. Marine with St. Louis ties at Saturday’s One-Day Blues Fest.

Lance Cpl. Jared Schmitz died in August 2021, while evacuating refugees from Afghanistan. His father and stepmother already have a drink truck, Barley & Vine.

This weekend Mark and Jaclyn Schmitz will honor Jared with a beer brewed by Friendship Brewing. They also share plans for a housing development in Jared’s honor.
