  3. Project supporters  downloading, signing and mailing a USS Thresher Arlington National Cemetery Commemorative Monument Project supporter letter to Ms. Karen Durham-Aguilera, Executive Director, Army National Cemeteries.
  4. Fundraising the estimated $10,000 needed to privately fund the design, construction, installation, dedication & perpetual care of the USS Thresher Arlington National Cemetery National Commemorative Monument through your generous donations.

    1. A detailed justification of proposed monument.
    2. A proposal that identifies the nongovernmental group making the offer.
    3. The estimated value of the donation.
