YOU ARE INVITED... MEMORIAL IN YOUR HONOR...

Post by lpastwik » Tue Mar 15, 2011 2:26 pm

Too often Desert Storm & Desert Shield is forgotten. We do not want to ever forget the service and sacrifice of those who lost their lives. We want to educate the public about those Veteran’s stories. We want the families of those who lost someone to have a place to see the names in stone in a special sacred place.
We are in the process of creating an official section of granite pavers to be laid in honor of those who have fallen in Desert Storm, Desert Shield. This will be sponsored by a number of great organizations and businesses but we feel that it is crucial that those who served be present at our unveiling ceremony. These pavers shall be officially unveiled on the Thursday morning before Memorial day, May 26 (with an additional paver ceremony on Monday morning May 30). It shall be a ceremony to memorialize the legacy of those Americas killed in the line of duty.We would be honored if you all would join us at this event as we honor those who gave their all.

Please contact me for more information. There is no charge for your attendance, we just want to honor your comrades with your blessing and attendance.

Hey guys... we are having 2 dedication ceremonies for pavers... One exclusive for Desert Storm's fallen shall take place the morning of May 26. Then on Monday May 30 (Memorial day) we will have another paver ceremony that will honor ALL the dedicated pavers placed on the walkway. Both ceremonies will be a touching experience and a place to reunite, share stories, and remember loved ones. You are welcome to attend both ceremonies.

Thank you for honoring our fallen brothers and sisters. For those of us who served in Desert Storm, this is a reassurance that our fallen comrades will never be forgotten, and serves as a healing agent. It would be great if the ceremony was videotaped and posted on the web for those of us who are too far away to attend.
"My confidence in you is total. Our cause is just! Now you must be the thunder and lightning of Desert Storm. May God be with you, your loved ones at home, and our Country." -- General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, USA Commander-in-Chief U.S. Central Command, in a message to the command, 16 January 1991
