Bob Giffin has made the suggestion that as part of our 50th Anniversary, we have a monument placed at the Airborne Special Operations Museum in Fayetteville, NC. The monument would be in the company of those placed by the 112th Signal Battalion, JCU, SSD, and the 82nd Signal Battalion.
I’ve coordinated with COL Corcoran and CSM Pflieger and they agree this is a fitting honor for JCSE and asked the VA to take the lead on this action. The Board of Directors has approved a motion to move forward.
Bob Giffin has taken the lead for the VA and is making some preliminary designs for the monument and is willing to serve as the direct coordinator with the museum director.
It is my plan to arrange for the dedication to be on December 2, 2011, the actual date of the 50th Anniversary of the activation of the finest tactical communications organization in the Department of Defense.
The cost of the monument is $4700.00. I have donated the 1st $100 to the fund. Willie Stokes donated the 2nd $100.
Because we believe this is a worthwhile endeavor we are asking members to consider making a tax deductible donation to the JCSEVA Monument.
Thanks for your support
