A word from Founder/Chair, Annette Polan:

Sadly, our exhibition portrays less than half the number of brave men and women who have lost their lives in America’s latest war.  It captures a mere snapshot in time, yet it recognizes and memorializes the sacrifice of all these fallen heroes.

Your generous gift will celebrate their valor, salute their patriotism and bring a measure of comfort to their loved ones.  I know you will do the best you can to help.
hank you.”
