YOU HAVE HELPED US RAISE $420,000 TO DATE AND WE ARE ASKING YOU TO HELP US REACH OUR GOAL OF $500,000 TO MAKE THIS INCREDIBLE MEMORIAL A REALITY.  GROUND-BREAKING WILL TAKE PLACE ON VETERANS DAY THIS YEAR 2017 AND WE WILL DEDICATE THE MEMORIAL NEXT SUMMER AFTER IT HAS BEEN BUILT

$4.42 IS ALL WE ASK!  YOU CAN HELP MAKE THIS HAPPEN!  UNFORTUNATELY GOFUNDME WILL NOT ACCEPT ANYTHING LESS THAN $5 - SO HONOR THESE 58,000 PLUS KIDS WITH AN EXTRA 58 CENTS.  PLEASE
 
HELP US BRING THIS MEMORIAL TO UTAH TO HONOR ALL OUR VIETNAM VETERANS.

FUNDRAISING FOR THE REPLICA OF THE VIETNAM MEMORIAL WALL THAT NORTHERN UTAH VIETNAM VETERANS OF AMERICA AND THE UTAH STATE COUNCIL VIETNAM VETERANS OF AMERICA ARE, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH LAYTON CITY, TO BRING TO A PERMANENT HOME IN UTAH.

THIS CAMPAIGN WITH GOFUNDME HAS BEEN ON FOR A WHILE - BUT IT IS ONE NEARLY EVERYONE CAN AFFORD. IT INVOLVES THE MONEY AMOUNT OF $4.42.  THATS ALL WE ARE ASKING FOR $4.42 FROM EACH OF YOU.  MORE IF YOU CAN BUT $4.42 IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.

WHY THIS AMOUNT?
NEARLY  34 PERCENT OF OUR YOUNG PEOPLE ON THE WALL WHEN THEY WERE LOST WERE E-1, E-2, OR E-3.  THE AVERAGE PAY FOR THEM INCLUDING COMBAT PAY WHILE SERVING IN VIETNAM WAS  $4.42 A DAY OR 18 CENTS AN HOUR. SO THINK ABOUT IT. NEARLY 22,000 OF AMERICA'S HEROES ON THE VIETNAM MEMORIAL WALL DIED MAKING 18 CENTS AN HOUR.   WOULD YOU GIVE YOUR ALL FOR 18 CENTS AN HOUR.  THEY DID.  TIME TO HONOR THEM HERE IN THE MOUNTAIN WEST AND ACROSS THIS GREAT NATION THEY SERVED.

SO ALL WE ARE ASKING FROM EVERYONE - UTAH AND ACROSS THE NATION IS TO DONATE JUST ONE DAY'S PAY IN COMBAT FOR OUR HEROES - THAT'S $4.42,  OR MULTIPLE DAYS – BUT ONLY IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT.   YOU CAN DO THIS BY DONATING HERE WITH PLASTIC OR BY MAKING  A DIRECT DONATION TO: UT SC VIETNAM VETERANS OF AMERICA AT 5432 S. 600 E., OGDEN, UT 84405 (INDICATE IT IS A  DONATION FOR THE MEMORIAL WALL)  OR MAKE EVEN LARGER DONATIONS IF YOU CHOOSE. THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS.  HELP US HONOR OUR YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN OF THE WALL. LET’S GIVE OUR FAMILIES IN THE WEST THE OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT THE WALL AND HONOR THEIR LOVED ONES. 

THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS - DENNIS HOWLAND - UTAH STATE COUNCIL PRESIDENT, VIETNAM VETERANS OF AMERICA..

Fundraising is going slow. Need everyone to help build this memorial. All we are asking for is $4.42 from each person. The amount of one day's pay in combat that several thousand of these kids gave lives earning. Would you give it all up for $4.42 a day - 18 cents an hour? Many did.

I don't know if you are doing it already but for a suggestion to help raise money is to have like donations buckets where people can put money in maybe like at the stores or something. Also it helps if you can get the media involved and they can spread the word because a lot of people probably don't know about this project. I have been trying to spread the word and can maybe try and get home of some media to help get the word about the project.

There is no such option. The Wall will be funded and built. With the help of all Americans and her heroes. The issue is moot.
