The power of Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial and these grounds
“We will have monuments and statues throughout the park to help visitors reflect, remember and find solace. Visitors will be able to truly become absorbed by the sacrifice of those who serve. It is all-encompassing in its impact.”

REMEMBERING AND HONORING VETERANS
Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial gives veterans, their families and supporters a peaceful area to reflect on the past and honor those who served and are currently serving.
Our Memorial serves as a bridge between veterans and civilians, educating visitors about the ongoing triumphs and challenges of those who served, including their families.
EDUCATING A NEW GENERATION
Many Americans grow up without knowing the Vietnam War’s impact on this country. Veterans were not celebrated during their return home as they are today. This complicated war left a mark on America’s past and in the hearts of those who fought in it.
Many veterans carry the weight of their experiences alone. This Memorial gives them the opportunity to share their stories, connect with others and educate the public on the difficulties they faced.
EMPOWERING MISSOURI AND OUR COMMUNITY
Organizations throughout Southeast Missouri all the way up through St. Louis are already lending their support. Local historical groups and organizations are proud to have a project this special to rally behind.
