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

Lieutenant General, U.S. Army
“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.”
