VETERAN2The state of Missouri selected PCE to oversee construction of Missouri’s first statewide memorial to Missouri veterans. The $1.5 million project near the State Capitol Building in Jefferson City overlooks the Missouri River northeast of the State Capitol.

The design features a five-bay limestone colonnade, a scaled reproduction of the Capitol’s columns surrounding the dome. The terraced waterfall welcomes visitors to the reflecting pool which bears the immersed motto: “Missouri Veterans – Guardians of Liberty.” Further east, along “Veterans Walk,” eight black, marble posts symbolize the eight wars fought since Missouri became a state.
