Missouri Military Appreciation Day

On Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2017, state officials will host Missouri Military Appreciation Day with an event at the state’s capital, Jefferson City. With more than 95,000 Missourians who work in defense-related jobs, several military installations, and dozens upon dozens of military vendors and suppliers, the military industry has a significant impact on the state’s economy. In fact, for every $1 invested into the state’s military, $2.50 is generated in Missouri goods and services.
