As seen on KCRG "Our Town" June 2015

May this dirt we turn over be the start of a healing process, where those who serve us in our nation's armed services find at home embrace, applause, uplift, belonging, and a network to new opportunities to serve, work and live locally and regionally to the betterment of us all...
 
May weddings, anniversaries, family reunions, graduations, local achievements and triumphs be held here in this building to come. Because our veterans are not only us, but are here to serve in the celebration of the goodness of life as a uniting force in this growing town that we love so much...

In Closing...

The WAVP Veterans Center honors the Veterans of yesterday, today and tomorrow. It recognizes and celebrates the sacrifice of those who served in past conflicts, those who serve today, and those whose service awaits them. These men and women and their families are ever mindful of the reality that freedom is not free. It is in this spirit that we build this very special home "Where Patriots Gather"
