Update on the 11th ACR Monument and Memorial at Fort Benning

Thank you to many of you who have made significant contributions (including the purchase of pavers) to the movement of our monument and the construction of its new memorial site at Fort Benning. As a result, we are now well along in the construction process. We are still on track to dedicate our monument and memorial on August 20, 2015. We will continue to send you periodic updates.

As you’ll see in the photo galleryopens in a new window that documents the early stages of this process, stone from the quarry has been cut and polished, our insignias have been applied, the bronze plaques are ready, site excavation is complete, and most of the concrete work in finished. Next up is the finishing of the sidewalk, the laying of the paver bricks, and the positioning of the four obelisks and two granite tablets.
