Missouri Gold Star Families Memorial
This stunning granite monument features two sides. One side bears an inscription to Gold Star Families. The other side tells a story through four granite panels: Homeland, Family, Patriot, and Sacrifice. These panels were designed by Katherine Yung and Emma Carter, graduates of College of the Ozarks. At the center of this tribute is the most distinct feature of the monument, the silhouette of a saluting service member, which represents the Loved One who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom.
