The Vietnam Veterans Memorial at College of the Ozarks located in Point lookout, Missouri will be dedicated in a ceremony on April 22. The keynote address at the event will be delivered by none other than Oliver North, the retired Marine lieutenant colonel, best-selling author and Fox News contributor. 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.
