Our visit to the Memorial was a trip my wife and I had looked forward to, especially because I am a Vietnam Veteran. We first saw that field of flags above the Vietnam Wall and our breath was taken away. We knew from that point on that our expectations would fall short of what we saw. From the veteran volunteers who manned the site to our meeting with Nancy Guth, we were impressed with the solitude and peaceful atmosphere that surrounded us. From “The Wall” to the beautiful pavilion with the “Guardians of Freedom” monument, we could not have been more impressed with the design and thoughtfulness that was represented by this project.

“As a Navy veteran, I am thrilled to support Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial. My fellow service men sacrificed a great deal—some giving the ultimate sacrifice—and I think a project like this Memorial is the perfect way to honor the legacy.”
“I’m really excited the group in Perryville is going through such great lengths to complete a full-scale replica that is as accurate and as complete as it can possibly be.”
