Thank you so much for supporting the Iraq Veterans Memorial and the Veterans Memorial Park! Photos, Videos, and News Coverage of the dedication has been posted at www.facebook.com/IraqVeteransMemorial.
We are still seeking 4-Star Sponsors to donate two more benches for the memorial. Attached are the four benches currently on display in the memorial. Also, please contact me if you can help us obtain a HMMWV (Humvee) and MRAP as military display vehicles.
Attached is a copy of the dedication program that highlights the many folks who made the memorial and the dedication ceremony possible. Each memorial is a monumental community project and we need your continued support to complete all the memorials in our veterans park.
