About This Event
College of the Ozarks will dedicate The Global War on Terrorism Memorial, April 24, at 2 p.m., at Patriots Park on the College campus. The public is invited to attend. Pete Hegseth, co-host of FOX News Channel’s Fox & Friends Weekend, will serve as keynote speaker. Mark McVeigh, Broadway actor and singer, will sing “God Bless America.” Music for the momentous occasion also will include performances by the School of the Ozarks honor choir, the College of the Ozarks Concert Band, Chorale, and Chapel Choir.
“We plan to make this ceremony memorable for all who attend,” said Bryan Cizek, director of patriotic activities. “This a grand opportunity for us to honor all Veterans of the Global War on Terrorism, Gold Star Families, and of course all those who continue to serve.”
Patriots Park, located at the entrance of the College of the Ozarks campus, is home to several memorials that highlight the valor of our country’s brave servicemen and women – The Missouri Vietnam Veterans Memorial, The Missouri Gold Star Families Memorial, the Greatest Generation Plaza, and The Korean War Memorial. Patriots Park also includes Veterans Grove, which consists of nearly 150 sugar maple trees that honor Veterans who have traveled with the College as part of the Patriotic Education Travel Program.
