YOU have the opportunity to permanently name a portion of the Veterans Memorial Building or on a plaque honoring your family or a Veteran. The 85-year-old building is being renovated and expanded for Veterans and for many community activities.
The last surviving WWI Veteran, Frank Buckles, recently died at age 110. About 1,000 WWII Veterans pass away every day. Those from the Korean conflict and all conflicts since are also leaving us, many without the help available through Veterans' services and the Veterans Administration. These services will now be available in the finished building.
Veterans’ buildings throughout the U.S. were built with the commitment to serve Veterans in perpetuity. As most Veterans are either retired or on disability and, therefore, with limited incomes, funding the Veterans portion of this over eight million dollar construction finds us presently short of our goal by about two million dollars.
Please consider a sizable TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation so that the building can be completed for our San Ramon Valley Veterans/seniors/citizens on time and within budget. You can learn more and make a donation by visiting www.srvVeteransHall.org or by calling our Veterans office at (925) 362-9806. Thank you.
