On Veteran’s Day, November 11, the student body of St. Mary Cathedral School in Cape Girardeau participated in the blessing and dedication of the Veteran’s Memorial recently placed near the school gym doors. Fr. Allan Saunders performed the blessing. St. Mary’s parishioner Tom Meyer and his wife, Mary donated the Veteran’s Monument to honor all of the veterans from St. Mary Cathedral parish in Cape Girardeau. Tom Meyer is a veteran of the Viet Nam war and was active in the Seabees. He brought a jeep that was used by the Seabees during the Viet Nam war that he restored along to the ceremony for the school children to see. Many St. Mary’s parishioners as well as the school children attended the ceremony including Tom Meyer’s sister, Beth McFerron.
