Boeing St. Louis Employee Veterans Honor Wall and Recognition Events

St. Louis Veterans Honor Wall Honors Service and Sacrifice

The Boeing St. Louis Employee Veterans Honor Wall recognizes St. Louis employees and retirees who serve with honor and distinction in the United States Armed Forces.

The St. Louis Veterans Task Force organizes and hosts three annual events for Boeing / McDonnell Douglas St. Louis employees, retirees, customers, and friends. The events held at Building 100’s Veterans Plaza, the Boeing Prologue area and auditorium, or Building 33, are open to the public. Please click the links at the top of this page to see details about these events.

The St. Louis site began holding formal Veterans Recognition Ceremonies in the late 1990s. The Honor Wall was dedicated on November 11, 2005, as a unified vision and culmination of unfailing support by Boeing St. Louis Site Leadership and the St. Louis Veterans Task Force, an all-volunteer team of both veteran and non-veteran employees.

The Honor Wall contains five seven-foot-high, circular stainless-steel walls, with a flagpole between each section. Dog-tag shaped plaques attached to the Wall include the names and service branches of current and former Boeing and McDonnell Douglas St. Louis employees. The Honor Wall is illuminated at night and includes a diversity of employees and their branch of service. A fountain stands at the center, surrounded with benches to sit that allow visitors to rest and reflect on the contributions made by our veteran employees and all those whose sacrifices protect the freedoms we enjoy.

New names are added to the Honor Wall on a semi-annual basis and an available book lists name locations of each veteran employee. New names may be added by submitting the completed Veteran Employee Honor Wall Authorization Form, available below.
