PERRYVILLE, Mo. - There is a new tourist attraction being built in Perryville, Missouri. But this has nothing to do with commerce; it's about a commitment. It's the story of one Vietnam veteran's promise to his fallen soldiers. Fifty years later, his promise is becoming a reality. Missouri Governor Mike Parson visited the memorial on Wednesday. FOX2's Sports Director Martin Kilcoyne has the story.
