           WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE


          WALL OF REMEMBRANCE


Congress has passed legislation authorizing construction of a WALL OF REMEMBRANCE to be added to the Korean War Memorial in Washington, DC. The wall will list the names of all US servicemen and women Killed in action (KIA), those held as POW and those still missing (MIA).  37,000 plus.

The stipulation that no federal monies can be used means that all funds must be raised by Veterans and the general public.

The cost of the  WALL OF REMEMBRANCE project is estimated to be $26, million dollars. The people of South Korea have committed the first $13, million dollars and we must raise the $13, million dollar balance.

The Foothills Chapter of SC #301 has made this a fund raising project with an immediate goal to cover the cost of engraving the names of 55 members from Greenville County, SC. If you are a member of the family of one of those 55 you may want to consider sponsoring that name yourself. Each name will cost about $350.00, making our initial goal $20,000 dollars, which we have already raised. To assist other KWVA chapters in SC we continue raising funds with the goal for SC at $120,000. All additional monies raised will go to the total project cost.

Donations may be made to KWVA Foothills Chapter #301 mailed to Chairman Lewis Vaughn 623 Ashley Commons Ct. Greer, SC 29651-5796.
