Veterans Memorial Park Foundation is embarking on a project to host a new monument that will represent the Global War on Terror. The Foundation would like design ideas for the memorial to come from the community. Although funds have not been raised, the Foundation says that with the support of the community, a planning and design committee potentially led by the Pensacola Young Professionals funds will be secured. Once a design has been developed required funding has been secured, the project will be submitted to the city for final approval.
The Foundation currently has more funding than it had since its 2013 establishment. However, these funds are used for security, landscaping, and emergent repairs. Money for additions to the park is only obtained through fundraising donations, and charitable grants.
The Veterans Memorial Park Foundation is accepting donations for a memorial to those who have sacrificed their lives in Global War on Terror. For More information or to make a donation, please visit the website at veteransmemorialparkpensacola.com/page/DonationKiosk.
