I was on a family vacation with my brother and his family. We stopped in Kingdom City on our way from St. Louis to Kansas specifically to see this memorial. My brother is a firefighter in Imperial, Missouri. His department is represented on the memorial. The inscription below the statue says it best: "No greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." It is a quote from the Bible, John 15:13, that alludes to Jesus laying His life down for us, in the same way these brave men and women also at times lay down their lives to save us.
