Arlington National Cemetery
How You Can Help
You can help gain approval from the Secretary of the Army to build a National Commemorative Monument to the men who perished aboard USS THRESHER within the gates of Arlington National Cemetery by mailing a USS Thresher Arlington National Cemetery Commemorative Monument Project supporter letter to Ms. Karen Durham-Aguilera, Executive Director, Army National Cemeteries.
Your help is also needed to fund the monument design, construction , transport and perpetual care. Per ANC guidelines, proof of funds are required in the commemorative monuments approval request package. Our goal is to submit our package to ANC in time for the August ANC Advisory Committee meeting. An analysis of the perpetual care costs drives the fundraising goal of $50,000.
Note that the IRS is currently reviewing our 501(c)(3) form 1023 and will provide approval within a months time. All donations made in calendar year 2018 will be retroactively 100% tax deductible upon approval.
