National Desert Storm War Memorial
11 hrs
Your support is needed TODAY! The National Capital Memorial Advisory Commission meets tomorrow, Thursday, January 28, 2016 to discuss the location in Washington D.C. for the memorial. We need you, and everyone you know, to write an e-mail to the Commission asking them to pick the best possible location for the National Desert Storm War Memorial in the Area I region of the capital. This is the area where the other war memorials have been placed.

This correspondence is absolutely vital in helping us secure the most appropriate site for our memorial. We have to show that the American people demand our memorial is given the same honored place near other war memorials. Spread the word and share this effort!

Statements and correspondence should be e-mailed to brandon_bies@nps.gov today!

Dear Mr. May,
I want to voice my enthusiastic support for the construction of the National Desert Storm War Memorial in Washington D.C. Operation Desert Storm was a very significant event in our country’s modern history. We liberated the country of Kuwait while restoring the belief in the dominance of the U.S. Armed Forces and American power. The over 300 Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice should never be forgotten.

I would also like to strongly encourage you and all of the other members of NCMAC to allow the memorial to be constructed in close proximity to the other war memorials in an Area I location. By doing this, you will allow the Desert Storm War Memorial to take it’s rightful place of honor for generations to come and for our living veterans, survivors and their families to honor their memories.

Thank you for your consideration and for the work that you do!

Sincerely,
{your name here}

2015 has become a year of living dangerously. Wars are spreading across the globe.  Wars are escalating as new countries are bombed and the old are ravaged with ever greater intensity.

It illustrates for the umpteenth time that Washington has provided aid and comfort to precisely those forces it claims to be fighting around the world. According to recent reports, …
