Flagpole Fundraiser

The Missouri Military Memorial Foundation monument is almost complete after 6 1/2 long years of grassroots fundraising.

The structure and graphic work that will be engraved on the memorial is  being completed as I type this. The excitement of seeing all of our hard work in honoring Missouri’s fallen military personnel come to light is INTENSE.

In the meantime, we have found out that we need another $6000 to get three beautiful flagpoles installed at the memorial. If you can find it in your heart to help us reach that goal we would be grateful. EVERY single dollar helps!

In order to donate, simply visit our website at and click on the “Donate Now” tab. You can use secure PayPal or submit the donation via USPS. Please make the check payable to the Missouri Military Memorial Foundation and submit it to:

PO BOX 1772
FENTON, MO 63026

Ella’s Fearless Heroes Lemonade Stand

Remember Ella? Ella raised $3003 for the Missouri Military Memorial Foundation last year simply by having a lemonade stand outside of her home. You may remember a post we made about her when she made the local news. Well, she’s back at it again and this time…this time her goal is even higher. Ella’s goal for this year is a whopping $9000!

This young lady inspires all of us at the Missouri Military Memorial Foundation. As our President & Founder always says, “We need more Ella’s in this world“.

This years Ella’s Fearless Heroes Lemonade Stand begins on July 1st, 2016. You can visit Ella to try some of her delicious lemonade by making a donation. The address is 1510 River Birch Drive,  St. Peters, M0 63376 and their Facebook page is so you can keep up on what days she’ll have her stand up & running.

If you can’t make it, but would still like to contribute to Ella’s efforts please send a check or money order to the address listed above with the check made payable to the MMMF or Missouri Military Memorial Foundation.

If you would prefer to make a donation online you can do so right here on our website using secure PayPal. Please be sure to enter a “note” that the donation should be counted towards Ella’s Fearless Heroes Lemonade Stand so we can add that to her total raised.

Ella, thank you so much for all you do. You’re such a wonderful young lady and we feel honored to call you our friend.

Flags of Valor at Art Hill in Forest Park – September 6 – 11th, 2016

 American Military Heroes to be honored by Art Installation on the Anniversary of September 11th. Nearly 7,000 flags will be on display at Art Hill in St. Louis St Louis, Missouri

Flags Of Valor from Redline Production & Post on Vimeo.


On 9-11-2016, America’s Heartland Remembers (AHR) will fill Art Hill – the iconic St. Louis destination in Forest Park – with nearly 7,000 American Flags. This awe-inspiring display, which will be known as “Flags of Valor” will pay tribute to the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while fighting the War on Terror since 9-11-2001 to keep us free and safe here at home.

Each and every flag will bear the name and photo of those who so bravely served their country, but never came home. The flags will be placed in chronological order according to the date they lost their lives and will allow loved ones and visitors to walk through the massive display so they can easily find and honor each hero.


AHR wants to ensure Gold Star Families have the opportunity to bring their Hero’s flag home. Family members can acquire their Hero’s flag at a reduced rate by visiting Here, they can also search for the location of their Hero’s flag on the Art Hill prior to the September 11th weekend event.

Additionally, members of the general public can sponsor a flag for a Gold Star Family, as well as acquire an unclaimed flag for a small donation. Apart from helping America’s Heartland Remembers fund two memorials for a fallen New York firefighter and a Marine from Iowa, all profits from the event will be donated to four (4) not-for-profit organizations that are closely aligned with the mission of America’s Heartland Remembers one of which includes the Missouri Military Memorial Foundation.

The MMMF has created a Facebook event page to help spread the word of this fantastic Flags of Valor display that will honor those who gave all for us.  Please be sure to follow this event page at the following location:
