Remembering Those Who Gave the Ultimate Sacrifice for Our Freedoms
Although most of our dead are buried abroad, this project will bring our fallen home. This is not a war memorial – it will not take the place of local cenotaphs or memorials that already exist.
Working Together for a Common Goal
The Association has formed an advisory board to ensure our success. They come from various areas of expertise and will work with an organization that has a proven track record in raising funds for successful National Memorials.
