Boone County to move memorial with religious symbol

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – The Boone County Commission has voted to move a memorial that includes a religious symbol from the county courthouse lawn.

Boone County Commission voted 3-0 Tuesday to move the Operation Desert Storm memorial, which includes a small ichthus, also called a “Jesus fish.”

The memorial honors two Boone County men who died in Desert Storm. It is one of several memorials to veterans of different wars on the Courthouse Plaza near the Boone County courthouse.

The commission voted to move the memorial to the Columbia Cemetery.

The county government covered the symbol in June 2014 after a Columbia lawyer concluded the memorial violated the Missouri Constitution.
