PrideFest 2013 Lighting and Memorial Wreath

Thanks to Steve Zeiger, a 26 year veteran of the U.S. Air Force, who organized donations from friends, the Bad Dog Bar, and JJs Club House to have this special lighting installed on the Soldiers Memorial Museum to recognize St. Louis PrideFest on June 29th and 30th.

Korean War Photos

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the armistice agreement that ended the Korean War. To honor this, we will be posting images donated by Paula Rodgers-Shinstock on behalf of her father, William W. Rodgers, a Korean War combat veteran.

The Street and Traffic Charity Fund donated all the proceeds from its golf tournament to the
Friends of the Soldiers Memorial Military Museum. The City of St. Louis Street Department
employees have long been generous in their support of Soldiers Memorial, and the money
raised by the golf tournament will be used to care for the museum and the collection. The
Friends would like to thank everyone who contributed and made this donation possible: It
is only because of the commitment of the St. Louis community that Soldiers Memorial
continues—for seventy-four years now—to fulfill its mission to honor the service and
sacrifice of our veterans and their families.
