Save the War Memorial in NC

52846320_1606384843783617_r.jpegWe are trying to raise money to restore this wonderful war memorial for fallen solders. This memorial is located in Boiling Spring Lakes North Carolina. Hurricane Florence damaged it. Please help bring back this wonderful memorial.
My brother was killed in Vietnam. His name was John D. Freppon. This memorial is honoring all of the branches of the military. The memorial wall has fallen in and needs extensive work. The grave markers, one for each of the armed services, match the exact height and width of the markers in the Arlington National Cemetery. . These markers have fallen down. The markers also need repaired. The walk way is damaged as well.
It is open to the public year round. The address is 1421 Cottage Road Southport, NC 28461 according to Google maps. It is called the Awesome Memorial.  We will repair the Flagpole., add two rocking chairs for the public to sit and reflect as well as an additional plaque to honor John D. Freppon. We will ask for permission to install an additional plaque for Mr. Loerzel.
Thank you. May all of the fallen rest in peace.
Judith Smetana
