Here is a story for you and it will help us a lot in bringing a Purple Heart Memorial Monument into Freedom Memorial Park prior to Memorial Day 2020.
***We are looking for some financial support from the community as the monument and foundation cost will come close to $10,000.00. We anticipate the monument to be in place by May 20, 2020, or before Memorial Day.

Visitors to Freedom Memorial Park see many names on the various war memorial monuments not realizing that all of service members whose name are engraved upon the monuments were killed in action and are recipients for the Purple Heart Medal for being combat wounded. The Purple Heart memorial monument calls your attention to them and also to the millions of combat wounded service members in our nation’s combat actions across the globe. The memorial monument is a lasting tribute to all combat wounded miltary service members of Fayetteville, Cumberland County, North Carolina and the USA.
