Arlington National Cemetery
USS Thresher Commemorative Monument
Dedication Ceremony Fundraising
Help us cover the significant costs associated with the USS Thresher ANC Memorial dedication ceremony and reception with a tax exempt donation.
The dedication ceremony will be held in the ANC Amphitheater. The post ceremony reception will be held in the Women in Military Service of America Memorial Building.
The USS Thresher ANC Memorial Dedication Ceremony & Reception has been tentatively scheduled for September 26, 2019.
Please note that this date is contingent on US Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) approval of the memorial design and selected location on June 20, 2019. If CFA does not approve either the memorial design or the selected location and additional work is needed, the date will be moved in support of the estimated 10 weeks needed for the memorial to be constructed, shipped and installed.
You have two ways to contribute:
