Fundraising for Vietnam memorial flag poles and inscription

(Editor's note: This article thanking the AWG is reposted from the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs' blog of July 6). 
 
Fundraising continues for the addition of flag poles and an inscription at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the Capitol Campus.

Our thanks goes to Skip Dreps and the Association of Washington Generals who contributed $3,100; members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars who contributed over $1,300 at their annual convention in Yakima; and attendees of the 45th Anniversary of the Republic of Vietnam Armed Forces who raised over $800 at their Seattle event.

As of July 5, far we’ve received $11,335 in contributions, so we’re on our way to raising the $50,000 we need to move forward. But we need your help to get the word out to other veterans or supporters who can help.

Has your VSO post or chapter gotten involved by sending a donation or posting flyers?
Do you know a business or individual who might be interested in donating?
Do you have an upcoming event where donations could be collected?
Let us know! Call Committee Co-Chairman Dale Parsons aka ‘Sgt Bilko’ at 253-208-7791 or e-mail heidia@dva.wa.gov.
