    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT  OF THE


          WALL OF REMEMBRANCE


Congress 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), held as (POW), and those still listed as (MIA).


The cost of the  WALL OF REMEMBRANCE is estimated to cost  approximately $26, million dollars. The Government of Korea (ROK) has committed to funding the CONSTRUCTION of the WALL with all  necessary engraving. No more fund raising necessary for the WOR. 


There are numerous additions needed to enhance the WOR and which will also Rehabilitize the 25 year old Korean War Memorial. These additions were planned by the National Park Service, but are now covered by the Korean War Veterans Memorial Foundation. And they  will continue to need donations.


The Foothills Chapter #301 made this a fund raising project on January 10, 2017, first with an immediate goal representing of the cost of engraving the names of 55 members from Greenville County, SC.  


To assist other KWVA chapters in SC the Foothills Chapter continued raising funds with the goal of  $200,000 estimated to be the cost of engraving 576 names, the same amount of names that will be added from the state of SC. All additional monies raised will go to the  Korean War Veterans Memorial Foundation KWVMF  toward upkeep and maintenance.


All the names to be engraved on the WOR have been decided and qualified by the Secretary of defense.
