Today, we remember those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. But let us not honor them with our words only; let us honor them with our actions.
Nathan Torian is raising funds for a memorial to honor his brother, MSGT Aaron C. Torian, and others who have given their life in the Global War on Terror.
At the Dolly McNutt Plaza in downtown Paducah, there are currently three memorials erected (WWII, The Korean War, and Vietnam), with one spot remaining. The City of Paducah and McCracken County have reserved this spot for a monument in honor of the soldiers who have given their life to fight the Global War on Terror, and have each donated towards its construction. In addition, Nathan is almost halfway to the final $15,000 needed for the completion of this project.
This Memorial Day, Socially Present and Paducah Bank will match donations toward this campaign totally up to $2000 and we hope that as a community we can see this project to completion.
Donations may be received at Donations can be received here https://www.gofundme.com/j9tkmd4k. Donations can also be made through the Operation Enduring Freedom Fund at Paducah Bank during normal business hours this week.
This Memorial Day, let's give to honor those who have given all. Thanks you to the most generous community on the planet and the biggest thank you to the men, women and families who have given all for our freedom!
