Veterans support

President, Atascadero Veterans Memorial FoundationJuly 19, 2013 

All of us at the Atascadero Veterans Memorial Foundation want to thank each of you for your support of our active duty military, our veterans and our Faces of Freedom Veterans Memorial. It is because of folks like you that we have this beautiful memorial, and consequently, we are extraordinarily grateful for the wonderful turnout we had at the grand unveiling ceremony and flag rally on the Fourth of July.

It goes without saying that your longstanding support has made the memorial and every event or ceremony at the memorial since its dedication possible, important and memorable. It is also important that you know that your support of our efforts to honor our nation’s heroes continues to make a difference in the lives of so many of our veterans.

So thank you for your support in the past and for your continued support of our veterans in the future. Your interest in our nation’s heroes sends a very clear signal to family, friends and to our community at large, of the value you place on the commitment, selfless service and sacrifice these Americans have made and continue to make, for this great country.
