The nearly 1,000 pavers in the EC-47 Memorial Plaza are available to pay tribute to veterans of all services and periods of service. Among the more than 230 bronze plates now being engraved are thirty-six that memorialize those EC-47 crew members who lost their lives during the Vietnam War. These In Memory Of pavers were purchased through a generous outpouring of contributions from former USAFSS and TEWS personnel. The extra donated funds were then used to purchase additional In Memory Of pavers honoring veterans of the EC-47 program that have passed on since the end of the war. The general donation balance is now zero. We invite contributions to build a small reserve for the purchase of In Memory Of pavers to honor other deceased veterans whose names and services are brought to our attention. Here are two examples of actual 4x8 In Memory Of pavers.
This Donate feature connects with the Heritage Chapter - Freedom Through Vigilance Association PayPal account. The chapter manages the EC-47 Memorial Plaza project. The Freedom Through Vigilance Association is organized under Internal Revenue Code 501 (c) (19) which provides an exemption from federal income tax and was approved by a letter from the District Director, Internal Revenue Service, Dallas, Texas, dated 17 February 1984. The Heritage Chapter also exists under that authority.
Thank you for supporting the EC-47 Memorial Plaza project with your generous contributions.
