Help honor veterans in America’s heartland

Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial

Stunning black granite presses against the earth with the names of those we lost in Vietnam

The Missouri National Veterans Memorial is proud to feature a full-scale black granite Vietnam Veterans Memorial identical to that in Washington D.C. on the National Mall.


This awe-inspiring, full-scale memorial will allow veterans, civilians and those currently serving to reflect on the sacrifices of our Vietnam veterans in the quiet, peaceful setting that Perryville offers.


The memorial is located 1.5 hours from St. Louis, Mo., and approximately 3 miles off a major interstate, making it easily accessible for visitors, especially those with limited capacity for travel.


how this project came to life...

This is not just a project for us. This is a project for everyone who cares about this country, who cares about the military and who appreciates the sacrifices that have been made. It’s up to us to make sure that courage and selflessness like that is not forgotten.
