"The Frontenac Memorial Wall was originally constructed as an Eagle Scout project in the mid-1990's by Frontenac resident Jared Pyle. With the assistance of Frontenac City Council Members, Pyle was able to come up with 225 names of war veterans for the original wall. The original wall remained until 2005.

"In 2005, City Administrator Dan Brunetti contacted Commander Ronald Wattelet of the Frontenac American Legion about the possibility of expanding the roster and relocating the wall. The task was taken on by Commander Wattelet and Legion Member Duke Locke to ensure that all Frontenac veterans were given proper recognition by having their names on plaques that indicated the war's or conflict's that they served in. When they completed their count, nearly 650 names were to be added to the original 225. The relocation was done, the new engraved plaques were placed, and now Frontenac has a Veterans Memorial Wall that everyone can be proud of.

"Currently the City of Frontenac has the responsibility for updating and maintaining the Memorial. The wall was relocated to a more prominent place in front of City Hall and names updated again in 2008. There are currently 895 names on the Memorial of veterans of WW1, WWII, Vietnam, Panama, Grenada, Lebanon, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.
