Ingress Mission Spotlight: Purple Heart City (Saint Robert, MO)

Ingress agents already know that Pulaski County is road trip country! The area also has several missions that will make Ingress Mission junkies happy! This week we shine the spotlight on “Purple Heart City” created by Resistance Agent Ancell.

Hidden History- Waynesville, MO Ingress Mission screenshot

Purple Heart City (Saint Robert, MO) Ingress Mission screenshot

Saint Robert is the youngest city in Pulaski County. The city sprouted up along the “spur” to Fort Leonard Wood in the early 1940’s and has always been proud to be home to our military heroes. In 2013, Saint Robert was the first city on the Interstate 44 corridor in Missouri to be named a Purple Heart City. This mission highlights several of Saint Robert’s salutes to the United States Armed Forces. You can complete the waypoints in any order.

Military Heroes War Memorial- Near the intersection of Missouri Avenue and Old Route 66, this memorial was dedicated May, 2013. The City of Saint Robert seal is flanked by the seals of the United States Army, United States Marine Corps, United States Navy, United States Air Force, United States Coast Guard and the US Army Maneuver Support Center of Excellence insignia.

Military War Heroes memorial

Heroes Plaque- Located in the historic George M. Reed Roadside Park on Old Route 66. This memorial is dedicated by the citizens of the city of St. Robert to the brave service men and women and their families who have sacrificed to protect our nation.

Desert Storm Tank- Located near the Heroes Plaque this Desert Storm era M60 tank pays tribute to our Desert Storm combat veterans and is also a great photo opportunity.
