No other monument in the United States is quite like the Veterans Memorial Walk, which was dedicated in 2001 as a place to honor all U.S. soldiers, past and present. Each year, thousands of people visit the Walk, which is free and open to the public 24/7. All are welcome, and parking is available.

The site is unique, with a platoon of cast bronze boots positioned as though marching. A solitary pair of boots is stationed at the foot of the POW/MIA flag, and an eternal flame burns continuously.

Public ceremonies scheduled at the Walk include Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, POW/MIA Remembrance Day and Veterans Day.

Permission is required to reserve O’Fallon Veterans Memorial Walk for special occasions. For more information, contact cstott@ofallon.mo.us or call 636-379-5550.
