If you’ve ever made a visit to the Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington D.C., you would likely remember the reflective black granite, the gentle sloping shape of the wall, and over 58,000 etched names of those who gave their lives in the Vietnam War.

Perryville, Missouri, is now home to the only full-scale replica of this memorial wall. With the last panels installed last week, phase 1 of the development of Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial (MNVM) is complete.

In our latest conversation, we discussed how the city is becoming more developer-friendly, the final approval of a TIF project on the Esquire Theatre, and the possibility of a new sculpture for Ivers Square. We also talk about the quarterly crime report.
