Armory, Kirksville, MO
The armory was named after James Rieger, a lawyer who was enlisted in the National Guard in about 1900 and who served with high distinction in WWI at the Meuse-Argonne offensive which was the decisive battle of WWI and for which Major Rieger was decorated with the Distinguished Service Cross. The entry has an art deco style with chevrons ascending on both columns flanking the entrance and a gold eagle at the top of the entrance.
