St. Louis Soldiers Memorial falls short

ST. LOUIS (AP) — It looks like the Soldiers Memorial in downtown St. Louis is unlikely to become a national monument.

St. Louis Democratic Congressman William Lacy Clay has proposed turning the memorial and military history museum into a national monument. But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch ( ) reported Thursday that a federal report found that it lacks the “national significance” to become a national monument.

The decision isn’t final. The National Park Service will continue to take public comments until April 13.
