Veterans and the public will gather beginning at 10am thru 11am on Friday September 16, 2022
at 20th & Mechanic/Market St., in Galveston, TX

In honor of the 51 Galveston County fallen warriors of all branches of service killed in action in the Korean War, 1950-1953.

History of the New Memorial:

Galveston County Marine Corps League, Detachment 668, launched the effort to build this memorial in 2019. Three years later, on Memorial Day, May 30, 2022, the project was completed. Notwithstanding heightened fundraising challenges and other factors caused by the pandemic as well as supply chain delays, the success of the chis endeavor is unhesitatingly evident. Commandant James Harvey originally recruited a team of U.S. Marine brothers, Richard Torres, Chairman, Doug McLeod, Ronny Harper, Allen Bishop, and Bobby Richardson (posthumously) to carry out this mission. Many others deserve credit as well, especially our underwriters who contributed generously to make this effort possible: American National Insurance Company, J.P. and Mary Jon Bryan, Charles and Mary Ellen Doyle, Gilbane Building Company, HomeTown Bank, Interstate Batteries, Edward A. Janek, Knights of Momus, Doug and Joan McLeod, Mayes and Macy Middleton, Ann McLeod Moody, Moody Bank, Moody Gardens, E. J. Pederson, Scott and Renee Rice, and Gerald and Susanne Sullivan.

Also, of crucial importance to the project were Jim Pozzi, Jack Bennett, David Cooper, Tim Walsh, Scott Brast, Scott Webb, John Kelso, John Zendt, Norm and Anne Miller, Meg and Craig Janek, Vic Pierson, Jimmy Rasmussen, Doug McLean, Kris Rutherford, Arc Vega, Ronnie Mills, Bruce LePard, Kam DeBondt, Bruce Luerson, Steve Monson, Bernie Sargent, Gary Peters, Hal Rochkind, and others.
