In the Global War on Terrorism, California has continued its
tradition of selfless service to the nation. As in past wars some
of our fellow citizens have paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect
our country and our way of life.
To honor those Californians who have
laid down their lives in the Global War on Terrorism, the California
State Military Museum is building a "Global War on Terrorism
Wall of Honor". Constructed of black granite, this memorial
will be locate at the entrance of your State Military Museum.
The names of service members who have died in the attack on the
Pentagon on September 11, 2001 as well as those casualties of
the Afghanistan and Iraq Campaigns will be listed chronologically
and will include their rank, branch of service, and age.
But, we can't build this memorial without
your help. Please help by making a tax deductible donation today.
Thank you for your support.
