Missouri Rededicates Memorial to WWI Veterans
COLUMBIA -- The University of Missouri has unveiled a restored memorial to World War I veterans during a campus Veterans Day ceremony.
The American War Mothers' Memorial honors the 117 MU students killed during World War I. It was originally dedicated in 1930 but removed in 1987 for a Rollins Street widening project.
The memorial was recently restored on the east side of the university's Memorial Union, which also honors war veterans.
Missouri chancellor Brady Deaton and others helped rededicate the monument at a noon ceremony Friday attended by nearly 200 students, campus employees and local veterans.
