THANK YOU to our veterans, as well as all the men and women who are currently serving, for your bravery, dedication, and sacrifice!
Congratulations to the entire Quiring Monuments Team! If it wasn't for Ms. Nealey taking my initial call seriously that summer morning in 2012, my design/project definitely would not have culminated as it did. My military monument turned out better than I ever imagined. THANK YOU for believing in me!
Quiring Monuments, Inc. was honored to receive FIVE Awards this past week in the Design Contest at the American Institute of Commemorative Art (AICA) convention... held in New Orleans, LA.
We swept the Flat Marker Category by receiving 1st, 2nd & 3rd place as well as 2nd place in the Public Memorials category and 3rd place in the Medium Monuments category.
Thank you to our very special clients for allowing us to help them create this Memorial Art, and thank you to our talented Artists and Craftsmen for producing these beautiful pieces.

Last night, I was honored to receive the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams Eagle Scout Service Project Of The Year Award from the Greater St. Louis Area Council. Thanks to the many people who supported me, especially while working on my project. I cannot say, "Thank you," enough to our Veterans and those men and women currently serving in our armed forces for the cause of freedom.
As the holiday season comes to a close and the new year begins, I want to THANK all those who have supported me along my journey to Eagle. 2014 was an especially great year in Scouting for me and I plan to stay active in my Boy Scout troop. However, since my Eagle Scout Service Project is complete, I will not be posting on this page regularly anymore. This does NOT diminish my gratitude to all the men and women in our U.S. Military, both past and present, for their bravery, dedication, service, and sacrifice. Thank you!
Organized on December 13, 1636, the National Guard's oldest regiments were barely three months old when they met for their first drill on the village green in Salem, Massachusetts. Happy 378th Birthday to the National Guard...Thank you for being "Always Ready, Always There" in service!
On the morning of December 7, 1941, more than 2,400 American lives were lost in the attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. This year's Presidential Proclamation states it well:
"On National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, we pay tribute to the souls lost 73 years ago, we salute those who responded with strength and courage in service of our Nation, and we renew our dedication to the ideals for which they so valiantly fought."
Remember - Understand - Honor
In Philadelphia on November 10, 1775, the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution stating that "two Battalions of Marines be raised" for service as landing forces with the fleet. This proposal established the Continental Marines and marked the birth date of the United States Marine Corps. Happy 239th Birthday!
Many businesses are honoring our Veterans tomorrow. It would be great if Veterans Day happened more than once a year. Thank you, Veterans, for your service!
National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed across the U.S. on the third Friday in September each year. Many Americans take time to remember those who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are missing in action (MIA), as well as their families.
