ST. LOUIS — It looks like the Soldiers Memorial Military Museum in downtown St. Louis is unlikely to become a national monument.
St. Louis Democratic Congressman William Lacy Clay 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.
