Help Build DS Memorial on National Mall

National VFW - 4/14/2017

The Desert Storm Memorial has been approved to be built in Washington, D.C. Now the question is where, since the use of public space in Washington is always subject to intense scrutiny. The memorial foundation is seeking the VFW’s help to convince the National Capital Memorial Advisory Commission that the best placement would be in the vacant corner section of Constitution Avenue and 23rd Street, NW, which would be adjacent to the Lincoln Memorial and Vietnam War Memorial, and within easy walking distance of the District of Columbia’s World War I Memorial, the National WWII Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, and the yet-to-be-built Vietnam War Educational Center. VFW support of the Desert Storm Memorial is through the passage of Resolution 305 at the 115th National Convention in St. Louis. To date, the VFW is also the only national veterans organization to contribute money toward its construction, a pledged $500,000. Help get the Desert Storm Memorial built in the corner of Constitution Avenue and 23rd Street, NW, by writing: Mr. Peter May, NCMAC Chairman, 1100 Ohio Drive, SW, Room 220, Washington, D.C. 20242.
