Jim Beasley
Veterans Tribute at
Kaskaskia College

Dedicated June 6, 2014, the Jim Beasley Veterans Tribute honors area service men and women. More than 25,000 names are engraved in granite on two walls at the Tribute, which also features a bronze eagle sculpture and the five military service seals. Three new walls will accommodate more than 30,000 names, with engraving expected to start the end of 2018.

The contribution of the American Veteran cannot be overstated, the Tribute is not just names on a wall. They are our fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, grandchildren. They are nights out with friends, stories about comrades no longer with us. They are faces we cannot, nor will not forget. They are stories we like to tell again and again.

The Tribute is available for viewing seven days a week, so we invite to visit, to reminisce, to honor those who have served. Please feel free to tour this site and learn more about the Veterans Tribute Project, and how you can become part of this unique monument to our veterans.
