Proceeds from this weeks PGA Legends of Golf Tournament in Branson will benefit Missouri's tribute to fallen soldiers of the Vietnam War.

The memorial, which will be placed at the College of the Ozarks in Hollister, was approved on the last day of the 2014 Legislative Session.

"Without the sacrifice of our soldiers, we would not have the basic freedoms we take for granted," Senator David Sater said.  "While we may never be able to fully repay our debt of gratitude to our veterans, we can honor their memory and remember they are the reason we are able to continue living in the greatest country in the world."

The Legends of Golf Tournament, which is taking place at Top of the Rock and Buffalo Ridge, will help fund the project which will be designed by C of O graphic design students.

The tournament runs June 2nd - 8th.
