Veterans of Clay County who were killed in action are honored with a new memorial in Anita B. Gorman Park in Kansas City, Missouri. The Clay County Veterans Memorial Committee raised private funds to build the memorial, which contains names of veterans from Clay County killed in action since the Civil War. "Sovereign Wings," a bronze eagle sculpture, is the focal point of the memorial. WSKF Architects worked with the Clay County Veterans Memorial Committee and the Kansas City, Missouri Parks and Recreation Commission to complete this iconic project.
