Please note that we are currently searching for photos of the Missouri military personnel who we are honoring (please see our Memorial page here) that were either killed in action or a casualty of war during Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom to be displayed on the memorial monument.
What we’re looking for:
A high resolution (200-300 dpi) official military (bust) photo. You can have the photo scanned at any UPS (or other office) store. Please use our contact form to let us know that you have one you would like to submit for the memorial monument and we will instruct you on how to do so. The deadline is December 31, 2016.
