What is Heroes Way?


Heroes Way, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded in 2008 to honor the sacrifice of those who have fallen in combat during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, our two most recent, and present wars, in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In July 2009, the State of Missouri passed the Heroes Way Bill, formally known as the “Heroes Way Interstate Interchange Designation Program,” which allows relatives of Missourians who died in combat during these two wars to ask that an interstate interchange or a section of a state highway be named in the soldier’s honor.

Heroes Way is committed to joining together with local communities to raise the necessary funds for the memorials, so that the families will not be burdened by the costs associated with erecting the signs.
