VMGR Memorial Monument Goal Reached!

MCATA Members and friends of MCATA,

We are proud to report that as of yesterday 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 has more to do. Our next tasks and efforts will be to plan and fund a dedication ceremony worthy of these Marines' memories and of their families' sacrifices. Our committee does not want to turn to our next challenge without first expressing our thanks for your support and generosity in helping us to reach our goal.

As a side note: 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 nearly 200 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.

Semper Fidelis,

Your MCATA VMGR Memorial Monument Committee
