Giving back to the community is important to me; even more so when it’s for our Veterans.
I was approached by a couple of the board members of the Missouri National Veterans Memorial, currently being designed and constructed in Perryville, MO (my home-town), about providing my interior design services to select and produce art for the Welcome Center and to select the interior finishes for the Museum.
This project is well under-way, but there is still a lot that needs to be accomplished. A to-scale replica of the Washington, DC WWII Memorial (a sister wall) has been erected to provide an additional location for individuals to pay their respects to their family, friends and loved ones. The Welcome Center house’s a chapel, gift shop and lobby that will provide potential donors information about naming opportunities to honor their veteran.
To learn more or to donate, please visit the following link and watch the video to see how James “Jim” M. Eddleman (Perryville, MO native) kept a promise to himself to honor all those who served by donating 2.5 million dollars and a 47-acre farm where the memorial is located.
