GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION

Join us as we officially launch Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial

MAY 18-19 | 8 A.M.- 4 P.M.

Mike Parson

Missouri Governor

“Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial was established to honor and welcome service men and women and their families. While we can never repay the sacrifices they made, this privately funded site offers a quiet place for healing in the heart of America.”

ABOUT

Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial is a large campus located in Perryville, Mo., dedicated to honoring all of America’s soldiers and their families. Our crowning achievement is America’s Wall, a full-scale black granite replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall on the National Mall in Washington D.C.

The Grand Opening Celebration will

  • Commemorate what we’ve accomplished
  • Provide an opportunity for veterans and their supporters to come together
  • Pay tribute to America’s fallen heroes
  • Educate attendees about the true cost of our freedom
  • Help us lay the groundwork for future projects and events

Plan to bring your whole family to this momentous occasion in America’s history.
