In April of 2011, the 3rd BCT deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. This is their 4th deployment for both OIF and OEF since September 11, 2001.
Our initial goal was to raise enough funds to build a permanent memorial in honor of our fallen soldiers. Thank you to the generous donation from Hui `O Na Wahine, the Schofield Barracks Spouses' Club this became a reality. This memorial is located on Schofield Barracks at the entrance to the 3rd Brigade Headquarters. Additionally we were able to bring the bereaved families to Hawaii for a memorial ceremony and dedication held on May 10, 2012.
As our soldiers continue to prepare and train to support our great nation, the Association continues with its mission to honor those who have given all. We are setting goals to raise funds to add benches, pathways and additional engravings to the memorial.
As a supporter of our brave troops, that continue this day and beyond to serve in harm’s way, your donation will help maintain and further enhance this lasting and eternal tribute to their sacrifice.
