Posting date: 10 April 2003
( Donation Information )

Southern Colorado Base, USSVI, is beginning a fund raising effort to support the construction of a Submariner Memorial.

The memorial would be placed in a Veterans Ring of Honor located in Memorial Park in Colorado Springs Colorado.

Our plans are to use a black granite slab measuring approximately 42"x84"x12" placed vertically. This is consistent with memorials already placed by other service organizations.
