Over 4,000 Attend Grand Opening of Missouri's National Veterans Memorial

May 24, 2019


Memorial Day is more than the unofficial start of summer; it's a time to remember fallen soldiers.

Last weekend, Missouri's National Veterans Memorial in Perryville, Missouri hosted its grand opening.

Local Vietnam veteran James Eddleman donated nearly 50 acres of land and around two million dollars for the site. He says his greatest satisfaction comes from comforting a fellow veteran.
