Representatives from VFW Post 1465, 6498, 8320, and American Legion Post 449 have formed a committee whose goal is to create a local memorial honoring all the men and women who have served in the armed forces. Though the memorial is located in Wauwatosa, we welcome the opportunity to honor ALL those who have served in the US Armed Forces, no matter where they're from.
We have met with the City of Wauwatosa and selected a beautiful site in Hart Park near the bike trail. This Memorial will feature a beautiful stone monument highlighting each of the six branches of the United States military. In addition, a flag court will also showcase the various branches plus the American flag.
Personalized, inscribed bricks purchased by the community to honor family members or friends who have served, plus beautiful landscaping and benches available for relaxation or reflection will complete this design.
We are seeking support to help fund this memorial. The estimated cost of the project is $125,000. The State of WI VFW Foundation will be serving as the repository for donations received and is a 501c3 charitable organization.
