The Central Nebraska Veterans Memorial will be built on site at the new Central Nebraska Veterans Home in Kearney. As you can see reading the press release, this is a massive project which will require the efforts of local communities, businesses, citizens and Veterans Service organizations to complete.
Fundraising to date from veterans organizations alone has produced over $80,000 (60k from American Legion Post 52 in Kearney, and over 20k from Broken Bow VFW/Legion). To date we have over $800,000 raised or pledged towards a goal of $2 million. The news release I have attached has been provided to the state American Legion magazine and to the Nebraska Press Association (which produced a state wide press release to every newspaper in Nebraska).
