MOH PFC Willy F. James Jr. made the ultimate sacrifice for the United States of America. He the only African American from Kansas City, Missouri to receive this rare, distinguished award and we are fortunate to have had such a distinguished person who was born and lived here, prior to his Service in the U.S. Army.

PFC James is buried at the Netherlands American Cemetery, Margraten, Netherlands. His Medal of Honor currently doesn’t have a permanent display location. The goal is to display his medal in Kansas City, MO. Also, to raise $250,000 for exhibit and memorial. Join us in bring our hometown hero back to his childhood neighborhood.   

Begin the National WW II Museum traveling exhibit “Fighting for the Right to Fight” in October 2022 to Kansas City, MO.

Design and develop an exhibit at the Black Archives of Mid-America, Kansas City.

Design a memorial in honoring the sacrifice of Medal of Honor Recipient Private First Class Willy F. James Jr and African American servicemembers during World War II at Black Veterans Memorial, 12th Street & The Paseo.
