SPRINGFIELD VETERANS MEMORIAL
Sitting up high on the banks of the Missouri River is the Springfield Veterans Memorial at Terrace Park. Names of Springfield Veterans are engraved on the granite walls. A tall pillar displays the military service branch seals and an actual military cannon is on site. Photograph images are etched with the finest of details into the granite sitting benches.
This prayer is listed on their website:
“You may have served in combat or in non-combat.
You may have retired out or you may have served for a short time.
You may have been a draftee or a volunteer.
You may have served in the Corps, Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines or National Guard.
BUT YOU SERVED. You did your job honorably, and for that I am proud to call you BROTHER.”
