The Mission of Patriot Park Foundation is to honor our Global War on Terror Armed Forces and their families for their sacrifice to preserve and protect our freedom; to share with Patriot Park visitors, through stories and displays, the actions our military personnel so courageously carry out; and to raise awareness of their continued need for our support.
Patriot Park will fulfill this mission by displaying on the Gold Star Pavers the names of all those who died in the line of duty while serving this country in the Global War on Terror. The GWOT has been raging for over 17 years with the loss of thousands of lives. The Memorial Plaza is designed to remember each of those lives with an inscribed gold paver brick. Veterans and their families will be honored by the displays and story boards surrounding the Memorial and located in the Education Center. The site will provide information in a way that will motivate the hundreds of thousands of annual visitors to remember and support veterans and veteran organizations.
Patriot Park Foundation received 3 – 4 foot by 5 foot vinyl signs donated by Pennsylvania Army National Guard, and special thanks to SFC William Farris. The red, white, and blue signs announce the future home of the Patriot Park Global War on Terror Memorial and were erected temporarily just in time for the September 11, 2018 anniversary. Permanent frame works are currently being constructed.
