Douglas County Veterans Monument Foundation awards its First Grant

Posted on: April 6th, 2015 by admin No Comments

Douglas County Veterans Monument Foundation is pleased to announce that on March 5, 2015 the Board of Directors approved its first grant of assistance to a veteran in need who honorably served in the United States Army.

A U S Army Specialist (E4) served from August 24, 1977 to August 22, 1980 with the 76th Engineering Battalion at Fort Meade, Maryland.  He actually joined the Army before graduating from high school on the delayed entry program to learn a construction trade.  While at Fort Meade, as well as a deployment to a Naval base in Delaware, he assisted in the construction of buildings, bridges, roads, and sidewalks.  Additionally, he and his fellow team members built a multi-purpose sports court, all for the use of fellow military personnel.  He also participated in military maneuvers training in woods of nearby Pennsylvania to improve the combat skills of the unit.

This US Army Specialist states that the Army taught him discipline, teamwork and responsibility.  It must have instilled a strong sense of patriotism in him for life as well, as he concluded email remarks about his service with:  “To this day I would go to war for my Country if I was ever called to serve”.
