Once a year, the One Act of Giving "Honor Bus" takes Vietnam Veterans to Missouri's National Veterans Memorial in Perryville, MO. It is a permanent full scale black granite replica of the Vietnam Wall in Washington D.C. It is housed on 46 acres of land donated by Jim & Charlene Eddleman, of Perryville MO. In fact, as you pull into the parking lot or are down viewing the wall, Jim & Charlene's farm is in the background, silo and everything. Jim is a Vietnam Veteran who swore that if he got out of there alive, he would do something to honor his fallen comrades and others that served this country. OAG takes pride in honoring these Veterans with a two day all expense paid trip to take in this beautiful memorial. You can view a news story about MNVM" HERE".
