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!

All of our fundraisers have one goal in common: to raise money so that we can build a memorial to honor Missouri’s fallen military personnel who were killed in action or a casualty of war during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and the Desert Storm/Shield wars; this is our Phase Two project.
Our Phase One project, the Gold Star Pavilion, was erected at Jefferson Barrack Park in 2014. To see more pictures, and learn more about our nonprofit, please visit ourAbout section on this website.
