SCAM ALERT: An individual impersonating a Missouri Veterans Service Officer has called several Veterans who had left voicemail messages with the MVC HQ main phone number: (573) 751-3779. We have temporarily shut off voicemail service for (573) 751-3779 and reached out to those we know were affected. No other MVC office phone numbers have been affected. The fraudulent activity is suspected to have taken place between January 10 and January 13, 2022. If you receive a suspicious call from someone representing themselves as an employee of the Missouri Veterans Commission, please do not share personal information and report the call to us by emailing [email protected]

New Strategy Outlines Five Priorities for Reducing Military and Veteran Su***de

Su***de is a complex problem with no single cause and no single solution. Reducing su***de cannot be accomplished singularly through reactive policy change, rather it requires a long-term strategic vision and commitment designed to create and implement systemic changes in how we support service members, veterans, and their families across the full continuum of risk and wellness. Take a look!

For one hundred years, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier has served as a place of mourning and a site for reflection on military service.

Created in 1921, we laid to rest an unidentified #American who fell in the first World War to represent all who did not return.

From November 9th through the 11th, Arlington National Cemetery will host ceremonies to honor this American historic landmark which we will feature live here on this page. Please join us in honoring service and sacrifice.

Memorial Day public ceremonies have been cancelled at all five Missouri State Veterans Cemeteries due to COVID-19 concerns. Missouri State Veterans Cemeteries continue to follow CDC and National Cemetery Administration cautionary guidelines on large gatherings of 10 or more individuals. On Memorial Day, May 25, 2020, Missouri State Veterans Cemetery Directors will render appropriate honors and lower all flags to half-staff to honor all Veterans interred in Missouri State Veterans Cemeteries at all five State Veteran Cemeteries. Missouri State Veterans Cemeteries are located at Bloomfield, Higginsville, Jacksonville, Springfield, and Ft. Leonard Wood. To further honor our Veterans and include citizens who will not be able to attend our ceremonies due to the current emergency, the Missouri Veterans Commission will provide a video honoring our Veterans on its social media platforms in lieu of the traditional in-person ceremony. Originally called Decoration Day, Memorial Day was established as a day for Americans to honor those who were killed during the Civil War. It was not until after World War I that Memorial Day was expanded to honor those who have died in all American wars. Memorial Day was declared a national holiday in 1971 and was placed on the last Monday in May. For more information contact Jim Nugent 660-295-4237

When will the 2018 Memorial Day Service at the Cemetery be?
I'm attempting to pre-plan a little so my wife and dad don't have as much to worry about. I remember registering with Higginsville Veterans Cemetery about 5 years ago but have lost the confirmation paper. Is there something on file with you so that I can give my wife the name of your cemetery and reduce her hassle? Thank you
I have a question, kind sirs......with all the statuary of Confederate soldiers being taken down lately, (this may be a dumb question) what would your reaction be to someone being offended by the lion and demand its' removal for the inscription on it? Has anyone in this area of MO been shocked by what's happening lately? I know I have..........it's part of the history of the United States, and as such, must remain even slightly so fresh in all our minds.
I am so grateful for this lovely, sacred place. My husband, Thomas Robert Windes was laid to rest here in May of 2014. It is a beautiful, peaceful place that I enjoy visiting. My thanks to all those who provide care of the cemetery. It is pristine!
A beautiful resting place. My husband is buried there.
I visited both the Civil War and Military cemeteries a week ago for the first time. Such beautiful resting places for so many soldiers. Thanks to all who do such a wonderful job keeping the grounds in such great condition.
