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 our About section on this website.
