We are proud to report that MCATA reached our fundraising goal of $180,000 for the VMGR Memorial Monument. To every one of you reading this who made a contribution, large or small, thank you. Truly and sincerely, your support for this important project is humbling and inspiring. The forty-three Marines whose names will be permanently honored on the VMGR Memorial Monument, and those Marines' families deserve all the committee’s hard work, and all your contributions that went into reaching this goal. Thank you.
Our work continues. The MCATA VMGR Memorial Monument Committee are now onto planning and funding a dedication ceremony worthy of these Marines' memories and of their families' sacrifices. That is why we are still accepting your donations and brick purchases. Additional monies raised will be used to pay for the dedication facility rental, the dedication ceremony itself, and a dedication reception for the families. We have many more brick placements available, and we encourage you consider a brick to commemorate your service, or that of a loved one you feel would be a fitting honoree with a brick placed at the foot of the VMGR Memorial Monument. A new donation category, "VMGR Monument Dedication Fund" has been added for raising dedication money. More info is available here:
