Military Marvels Memorial honors veterans and service members

Adjacent to Ripley's Believe It or Not on Branson's 76 Country Boulevard is Ripley's Military Marvels Memorial, a fascinating display that garners the attention of veterans, military men and women and their families and history buffs from across the nation.


Created in 2021, the Military Marvels Memorial serves as a tribute to all who are serving or have served our country in the fight for freedom.  


The one-of-a-kind outdoor display features a variety of mobile equipment that our men and women in service have used throughout the years, including a Willy's Jeep, an LVT 4 Water Buffalo, an M56 Scorpion, an M43 Dodge Ambulance, an M59 Armored Personnel Carrier, and much more.  


One of the many unique items on display is a bald eagle—a symbol of freedom---made entirely of recycled scrap metal pieces from old cars and weighing 2,000 pounds.


Plaques placed throughout the exhibit welcome and pay tribute to veterans and active duty service men and women from all branches of the military.


The exhibit is free to the public and a great way to learn a little bit about those brave men and women who have served—or are serving—our country.


Ripley's Believe It or Not is located at 3326 76 Country Boulevard in Branson. Ripley's Believe It or Not is open daily, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, visit their website,
