The Memorial foundation is committed to constructing and maintaining a Memorial honoring our Van Zandt County military. Groundbreaking for the Memorial took place in January 2009, and construction began in April 2009.
Yet for the Memorial to achieve these goals, generous donations from individuals and organizations are needed. Fundraising is an ongoing effort. From constructing the Memorial, to maintaining a perpetual care fund, the Foundation will ensure that the Van Zandt County Veterans Memorial will last for many generations to come.
