2015 Pershing Days
Pershing Memorial Museum and Leadership Archives
John J. Pershing was the only living officer in the history of the United States authorized to wear six stars with the rank of General of the Armies of the United States. His name must be known by all Americans - every veteran, every school child. We are the generation that will insure his name is firmly planted in the hearts, minds and history of our country.
The Pershing name must not be lost to history.
SOLD, SOLD, SOLD!!!
All day Wednesday, May 6, 2015, auctioneers from the Iman Auction Company sold hundreds of historic military related items: weapons, pictures, paraphernalia, uniforms, and books at the Laclede General John J. Pershing Museum. John Leopold of Marceline, a United States Navy World War Two Veteran, donated his entire military collection to the Pershing Park Memorial Association (PPMA), with the stipulation for it to be sold at auction. Leopold stated, "It's time to give up my collection and the PPMA is working hard to establish a worthy General Pershing Museum for our community."
