At the Honor Flag Memorial, we embrace the memory of our nation’s military members in an intimate contemplative space.

America’s Wall transcends generations and educational boundaries. This Wall is connected to the land and surrounded by the heart of America, a one-of-a-kind place for all who need to remember, honor and pay tribute.

The Guardians of Freedom monuments does not pay tribute to a specific war but rather the dedication of all United States military outfits.

AMERICA’S WALL

In Perryville, Mo., stands an exact replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. America’s Wall is connected to the land and secluded in America’s heartland, where it transcends generations. It provides a respite from traffic and distractions, allowing visitors to completely immerse themselves in a calming and peaceful environment to remember, honor and reflect.

HONOR FLAG MEMORIAL

We remember. We remember the sacrifices and bravery of our nation’s military members and their families.

The Honor Flag Memorial is a large, concave structure, stretching 49 feet along the Welcome Center’s western edge. Each granite section pays homage to America’s conflicts and branches of the military, with laser-etched illustrations and typography.

GUARDIANS OF FREEDOM

Under the pavilion near the Welcome Center, you’ll find the Guardians of Freedom monument, a testament and tribute aimed at representing each military branch’s contributions to America as a free society.

The memorial’s design features the military seals of the United States Marine Corps, Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard.

“We’re really excited for people to be able to visit Perryville, Mo., to have a healing or educational experience similar to what they would have in Washington, D.C.”

“Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial is going to be the most distinguished and fascinating site of its kind in the country. In addition to the black granite Vietnam Memorial Wall, there will be a museum that honors all veterans. Brilliantly conceived and beautifully constructed, this will draw Americans from all over the nation and visitors throughout the world with a single purpose in mind, to honor America’s veterans.”
