Welcome to the Mississipi Valley Veterans' Memorial website.
Here you can check the lateset news and see the progress of the memorial as the project moves forward.
We will also keep a running list of the veteran's names that have been sent in to be included on the memorial as well as a list of the coporate sponsors and private contributors. We will try to keep the site updated, so if you don't see your name on the list, then check back later. If you would prefer not to have your name listed on the website, then contact us using the link provided and we will remove it from the page.
Our goal with this project is to create a beautiful tribute to those who have served our country. We want to honor those individuals by listing their names on a memorial that is not only beautiful, but dramatic as well. This is designed to be a place to meet and to remember. The memorial will be funded by area veterans, private donations and area businesses. Leyda, Burrus and Metz Monuments, in Burlington, has been contracted to build the memorial.

NOVEMBER 11, 2014 ------ CONSTRUCTION HAS BEGUN !!
The site is behind the RecPlex on Division street.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to our generous donor, Great River Health Systems, for donation of the site.
An anonymous donor has made a tremendous donation that will go a long way toward the memorial's completion!
The Marines feature artwork was completed a little while back. Now we are close to completion on the Navy artistic feature.
Donations are still needed to complete the project!
The foundation is being installed at the site, and the first artistic feature has been completed. Check the photos section for details.
