UPDATED: DEDICATION OF THE NEW GLOBAL WAR ON TERRORISM (GWOT) MONUMENT

May 28, 2018

DEDICATION OF THE NEW GLOBAL WAR ON TERRORISM (GWOT) MONUMENT

The long-awaited dedication of the new Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) monument at the Freedom Memorial Park in downtown Fayetteville will take place a week from now on Memorial Day, Monday the 28th of May 2018 starting at 10:00 AM.

This is a worthy tribute to our brave men and women who have made the supreme sacrifice in fighting terrorism worldwide since 9/11. The realization of this community undertaking was made possible by the consideration and generosity of our chapter members who collectively donated over $25,000 to defray the cost of the monument.

Several chapter members will participate in the ceremony. The invocation will be delivered by our Chaplain (LTC) Tim Atkinson. The keynote speaker will be General Dan K. McNeill, a chapter member and a veteran of several global war on terrorism campaigns.

Two other members, COL James Wanovich and LTC Jon Pendell, both veterans of multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan since 9/11, will assist in laying the CFC memorial wreath on the GWOT monument.

This will be a historic event for our chapter in that it is our first tangible contribution to our local community. A sizable and noticeable representation of the Cape Fear Chapter at the event would be most appropriate and desirable; a group photo will be taken upon conclusion of the ceremony.

Let us all observe this Memorial Day by attending this poignant and patriotic ceremony in honor of those who have laid down their lives in service to our nation.

UPDATE: Congratulations to the Cape Fear Chapter for their support of the new memorial on the Global War on Terrorism. Read the MOAA website post with the story about the Cape Fear Chapter's participation in the monuments development.

NCCOC Storming the Hill Message from CAPT David Lee

NCCOC Storming the Hill Message from CAPT David Lee

April 20, 2018

“I am very proud of the NC contingent that stormed the hill on Wednesday. We saw lots of important and busy people who are managing the business of our great country. I believe they heard our issues, understand the implications and are more likely to take action based on our discussion and materials we left behind. The respected MOAA reputation was enhanced! Our military and veterans should be better off because of our efforts. We were a great example of how we are advocates for NEVER STOP SERVING!”

BZ! Well Done! (See thumbnail photograph)
