Saying thank you is the main purpose behind the only event in Missouri that is part of a
national tribute for fallen soldiers from the Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom
and Operation New Dawn conflicts. Camdenton Chamber Executive Director Trish
Creach says the idea caught on here in the Lake Area back in 2008.
There are 142 fallen soldiers from those conflicts who came from Missouri. The free
event begins at 9:00 Saturday morning at Camdenton Middle School.
