College of the Ozarks located in Point lookout, Missouri is breaking ground on a Vietnam Veterans Memorial. It is funded by a grant from the Big Cedar Lodge Legends of Golf PGA Champions Tour, presented by Bass Pro Shops. The State of Missouri is designating it as the official Vietnam War Memorial for the state.
College of the Ozarks has a vision “to develop citizens of Christ-like character who are well-educated, hard-working, and patriotic.” It sounds like an ideal location for a Vietnam War Memorial that honors the more than 1,400 Missourians who served and died in the Vietnam War.
The memorial was designed by an alumnus of the College and it will be constructed by students and faculty of the College. Point Lookout is located near Branson, Missouri so if you are a Vietnam Veteran attending a show in Branson why don’t you go down and visit the Memorial.
