Missouri VIII

As mentioned previously, I had to return to Missouri due to a computer system failure that cost me all the pics from my first trip. This turned out to be a good thing as I found additional sites and met some really interesting folks. One of these chance meetings led to my being interviewed by a local St. Louis radio station. The interview turned out to be one of the most popular ones ever broadcast!

This memorial is located in a suburb called Florrisant. In fact, I was interviewed there by the local edition of The Florrisant Patch, an on-line newspaper. Quite a trip, all in all!

The memorial sits in a small park area and is dedicated to those who served and those lost in Vietnam. Dedicated on July 4th, 1969, it remembers and honors the 41 from the area who were lost. It is also one of the older memorials I have found around the country.

The memorial is located along Howdershell Road.

Next time, on December 6th, check out a site in Montana. As always, I will see you at 9:00am.
