College of the Ozarks is an interesting private college in Missouri that we’ve visited before. It being Memorial Day in the USA today, I thought it would be appropriate to feature the college’s war memorials.
Situated in a cluster at the periphery of the campus are several patriotic memorials that honor those who served and sacrificed to preserve American liberties.
The Missouri Gold Star Families Memorial honors Gold Star Families — those who have lost a loved one in war. A reminder that freedom is not free.
This Korean War Memorial (above) depicts soldiers who have lost a brother in battle. War is often deeply painful…
The College of the Ozarks is home to the State of Missouri’s Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The memorial honors the 1,410 men and women from the state who lost their lives in the Vietnam War.
Not featured in this post but also part of this grouping is Global War on Terror Memorial and a 9/11 Memorial
