           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. With the stipulation that it be built with private funds and no government (taxpayer) monies can be used. This means that all funds must be raised by Veterans and the general public.


The wall will have the names of all 37,000 American servicemen and women Killed in action (KIA), and will also honor those held as (POW), and those still listed as (MIA).


The cost of the  WALL OF REMEMBRANCE project is estimated to be $26, million dollars. The people of South Korea have already built a wall in Soeal Korea but have agreed to also help us.


The Foothills Chapter #301 made this a fund raising project first 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.


To assist other KWVA chapters in SC we continue raising funds with the goal for SC at $200,000 to cover the cost to engrave the names of all 576 comrads in the state of SC. All additional monies raised will go to the National Memorial Foundation toward the total project cost.
