Permanent recognition

Karen Dupske, a Boeing teammate in St. Louis and a U.S. Army veteranThis month, a memorial will be unveiled near Building 100 at the Boeing St. Louis site. It honors all Boeing St. Louis employees and retirees who are serving or who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. The memorial will be dedicated at a ceremony Nov. 11—Veterans Day in the United States.

The memorial features a circular plaza area containing a stainless-steel wall divided into five segments. Names of the veterans, along with their branches of service, are displayed on dog tag–shaped plaques fastened to the wall with rivets, a key component in the construction of aircraft manufactured at the site. There is also a fountain surrounded by benches, and flagpoles fly the flags of each of the service branches. A bronze plaque inscribed with the words, "In tribute to our employees, past and present, for their dedicated service in the United States military," greets visitors at the entrance of the plaza.
