Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial

More than a replica

Real heroes are men and women that put their life on hold and are willing to give up that life, so you and I might live ours in peace and prosperity.

That’s really what the American soldiers do. They protect us so we can enjoy our life. It’s something we all expect because we live in America. And for years in wars and skirmishes all over the world, our military has kept our enemies at bay in the process of preserving our precious freedom.

Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial’s mission is to preserve military history, honor all who served, educate Americans about the cost of our freedom and provide a place for healing and reflection.

Our campus is a powerful beacon for all service members and their families. We welcome everyone to experience the extraordinary power of this campus.


To learn more about this project:

“I have been involved with this project from the beginning and can attest to the sincerity, effort and dedication of all those involved in making this monument a reality. It will truly be a one of kind monument right in the Heartland of America, as we will honor all five branches of our Armed Forces.”

Founding Member Jim Eddleman

His significant financial contribution and donation of 46 acres of family land on which the Memorial is built was his way of providing a lasting tribute to America’s veterans.

Jim hopes his story will be an inspiration for others to not just support the memorial, but honor all those who have served.
