Group Seeks Site For New War Memorial

KSCB News - April 18, 2011 8:16 am

A new foundation is working to build a
memorial in Kansas to soldiers killed in conflicts from the first
Gulf War to the current engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The American Fallen Warrior Memorial Foundation is gauging
potential interest in four cities as sites for the project.
If all goes as planned, the winning city would be announced on
Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
Kansas native Tonya Evans is the founder and CEO of the
Lawrence-based foundation. Evans told The Manhattan Mercury the
group has approached Manhattan, Topeka, Lawrence and Kansas City
about the memorial, which would occupy 20 acres of land.
Evans’ vision includes individual plaques for every service
member killed as a result of operations Desert Storm, Desert
Shield, Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.
