THANK YOU !!
We have reached our goal to support the Beirut Memorial thanks to individual donations from Semper Fidelis Members, some local Veterans and a number of Veterans from across the east coast along with donations from the the following 11 Organizations:
Air Force Sgt Assoc., Elks Lodge 221, American Legion Riders Chapter 88 and Chapter 54 in Fernandina, American Legion Post 194 St Augustine, American Legion Post 316 Atlantic Beach, Knights of Columbus Orange Park, Fl, Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1046 Jacksonville, Marine Corps League 059 Jacksonville, Marine Corps League Fernandina, Florida and Vets 4 Vets.
We are very thankful for the “significant donation” that came to us from out of state to help make this happen…Semper Fidelis has no borders. This Memorial will happen and we look forward to placing a Beirut Memorial in the National Cemetery in the very near future as a result of all this support.
Memorial will be erected on Oct 23, 2019 and Dedicated on Nov 10, 2019 an rededicated every Nov 10th to ensure the memory of our fallen comrades is never forgotten.
