WHY A POW-MIA MUSEUM?

“While we can debate the rights and wrongs of war, what is not open to debate is what these men and women did for their country. This country called, and they answered that call, and many did not return.

People ask why this is important, it’s important because this country sent men and women into harms way and made them a promise. The promise was that they would be returned and it is a promise made not just by our government and our military, it was a promise made by each individual American. Each one of these men and women were somebody’s father or mother, they were somebody’s brother or sister, they were somebody’s husband or wife. All of us are those mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, brothers and sisters. That makes the promise we made to them one husband or wife to another, one mother or father to another, one brother or sister to another, and this is a promise that we’re determined to keep.” – Joint POW-MIA Accounting Command

The Jefferson Barracks POW-MIA Museum will be a part of this promise, a part of that commitment with which we have been entrusted. A commitment through which our fellow Americans will be able to see and understand – a promise made, and a promise kept.

We wish to THANK the Korean War Veterans Association Chapter #324 of Washington, MO for their recent most generous donation to the Museum.

The Chapter's unwavering support for the Museum project over the years has been so very vital to the Museum’s mission to put names, faces, and stories to that silhouette on the POW-MIA flag.

Unfortunately, time and health concerns have caught up to the Chapter and they will be folding their flag and standing down.

The Jefferson Barracks POW-MIA Museum extends our deepest appreciation to the Members of Korean War Veterans Association Chapter #324 for their steadfast support and generosity.

Your valiant service to our Country, to your Community, and to your fellow Veterans will not be forgotten!

We Salute You for a job well done!

Thank You, Hillsboro Hawks!

Mixed message with the photo of a memorial. No disrespect but most civilians can’t critically think that this day is for living vets, not active duty nor those we’ve lost.
