MO Veterans Lottery Ticket Ballot Initiative

The August 5, 2014 Missouri Primary Election ballot will also include Missouri State Constitutional Amendment 8:

"Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to create a "Veterans Lottery Ticket" and to use the revenue from the sale of these tickets for projects and services related to veterans?"

The MO Veterans Commission has issued the following informational statement about Amendment 8:

Statement from Missouri Veterans Commission on

Proposed Veterans Lottery Ticket

The Missouri Veterans Commission Commissioners have stated that they are happy to have any money which appropriately comes to us to support Veterans.  We are not sure how much money will be generated from the sale of a Veterans Lottery Ticket.  The Commission has not come out officially for (or against) the concept.  Any funding from the proceeds of a Lottery Ticket will go directly to the Missouri Veterans Commission Capital Improvement Trust Fund to be used in our mission to care for Missouri’s Veterans.

Lottery Ticket Legislation (HJR 48)

  • We thank the legislature for their support of Missouri’s Veterans by passing this legislation in both the house and senate.

  • If passed by the voters, the legislation is directed by the Missouri Constitution to deposit the proceeds from the Veterans Lottery Ticket into the Veterans Commission Capital Improvement Trust fund (VCCITF).

  • The funds created from the lottery ticket will help restore some of the operating revenue that was lost in the economic downturn.

  • The VCCITF is a fund dedicated solely for Missouri’s Veterans and is used for:
    • Construction and maintenance and repair of the Veterans Homes and Veterans Cemeteries.
    • Funds the operations of the Veterans Homes Program, Veterans Cemeteries Program, Veterans Services Program, and the Veterans Service Officer Grant Program.


70th Anniversary D-Day Photos

Pictures from Major Chris Ketcherside, USMC (Ret.), taken while in Normandy with friends to observe the 70th anniversary of the Allied invasion (D-Day, June 6, 1944) can be viewed by clicking on the "Photo Gallery" tab, above.

To note, Major Ketcherside may have finished his last deployment as an active duty Marine, but his service continues without pause at home—with hours and hours of volunteer work at Soldiers Memorial alone to his credit.

Veterans Writing Workshop

Veterans Writing Workshop:  Writing After War

Every Second and Fourth Saturday  May 10 - December 13 • 10 a.m.-Noon

St. Louis Central Library Training Room

We all have stories to tell, especially those who have seen the face of war, both on the battlefield and on the homefront.

To help returning veterans (from all services and eras), current active duty personnel, and family members adjust to life after war, the Library is hosting an eight-month writing workshop.

Professional writers from the St. Louis area conduct workshops for those interested in writing fiction, poetry, and nonfiction related to their time in military service. Plus attendees will use the Creative Experience and learn about the resources available for multi-media production.
