“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.”

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Perryville, Missouri, will give veterans, their families and supporters a peaceful area to reflect on the past and honor those who served or are currently serving.
Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial will serve as a way to bridge the growing divide between veterans and civilians by educating visitors on the ongoing triumphs and challenges of those who have served in uniform.
Many Americans grow up without knowing the impact the Vietnam War had on this country. Veterans were not celebrated on 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 will give them the opportunity to share their stories, connect with others and help us educate future generations on the difficulties they faced.
