Dear Fellow American
The price of liberty and the freedom, which we enjoy, has been high. Since the days of Washington, Adams, Paine, Jefferson, and Madison hundreds of thousands of our countrymen have been killed or wounded to perpetuate and guarantee that liberty and those freedoms. While we can never repay them for their sacrifices, we may honor their part in establishing and continuing our American way of life.
Several months ago, a group of Veterans came together with the thought of commenrating our champions. We formed a committee called LOVE OF AMERICA. Our plan is to erect seven flagpoles at Northside Park in Ocean City, to display the American Flag plus the banners of our Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. We want to remind the people of the Ocean City area and the surrounding community of the sacrifices made by some of us for the everlasting benefit of all.
We have received permission from the Mayor and City Council of Ocean City to erect this memorial. We estimate it will cost up to $20,000 to provide and maintain these seven flagpoles. We ask your financial support of our endeavor. It is our plan to hold "open to the community" events on Patriotic Holidays. We are concerned especially with instilling this message in our youth. Accordingly, we plan to involve local students, color guards, and band in the program.
To do this the members of the American Legion, The Veterans of Foreign Wars, The Marine Corps League and the Fourth Degree of the Knights of Columbus will coordinate the efforts of those supporting these activities. We need your monetary support. We are accepting individual donations or organizations to help contribute to this program. Any amount will be of help.
