BENEFITING: Global War On Terror Memorial Foundation
ORGANIZER: Global War On Terror Memorial Foundation
Please take a few minutes to check out this organization where I have the awesome opportunity to serve as the founding Vice President of the Board of Directors. As many of you know, I served in the Marine Corps from 2007-2012 with tours to Iraq and Afghanistan where I met a service members, civilians, and families that all sacrificed to protect our way of life during the Global War On Terror. Since then I've been serving with Team Rubicon and have had the opportunity to meet thousands more people who served our country during this conflict and every other conflict that still has surviving veterans.
One thing that's the same across all these conflicts is that the opportunity to meet, bond, share stories, and grieve with others who have served is invaluable. That's why I've taken on the role I have with GWOTMF, and why I am asking for your support. Your support will help speed along a memorial for this generation of veterans on the National Mall, a place to meet, bond, share stories, and grieve. I'm setting my initial goal at $10,000.
Plesae read on and donate, any amount helps, any recurring amount helps a ton! Thank you!

The mission of the Global War on Terror Memorial Foundation (GWOTMF) is to provide the organizing efforts to build a memorial on the National Mall in Washington D.C. to honor our fallen warriors, U.S. servicemembers, their families, and all those who have supported our nation’s longest war.
As we reflect on the 15th anniversary of 9/11, we believe now is the time to begin the work of creating a Global War on Terrorism monument in D.C. The path to success is long and arduous as our first challenge is to amend the Commemorative Works Act of 1986. As it currently stands, we are restricted from building such a memorial without an amendment that will accurately reflect the current state of war.
From there, we can begin the feat of raising millions of dollars in private funds to construct a sacred gathering place for our GWOT Veterans, active duty servicemembers and others who have served in unique capacities. We want to convey that this memorial will not come from taxpayer funds; its actualization can only come from the generosity and patriotic conviction of our fellow Americans. People like you.
As an all-volunteer team, we want to thank you in advance for joining our cause and the movement to bring about national healing and a dignified destination for our generation's warriors to pay homage to.
