The Lincoln Veterans Memorial Coalition was formed approximately five years ago to establish veteran memorials at four Lincoln cemeteries, and as of April 24, 2018, and was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non profit.
We will dedicate our new Veteran’s Memorial, honoring any Placer County resident who has honorably served in the United States Military, on November 11, 2019 at 11:11 am on the 101st Anniversary of Armistice Day, known today as Veteran’s Day, celebrating the end of World War I.
Our coalition is committed to raising private funds, or construction materials and services, to construct this new Memorial located at McBean Park in Lincoln, California. Lincoln residents will have a dedicated place to express their gratitude for those who have served, currently serve; but further, to deeply honor those who have lost their lives in the service of the United States. It is our goal to construct a Memorial that honors our Veterans’ while at the same time promotes civic pride.
The Lincoln Memorial Coalition consists of five organizations: James E. Fowler American Legion Post 264 / Auxiliary Unit 264, Lincoln Hills Veterans Group, Semper Fi Association, Glen Edwards VFW Post 3010 / Auxiliary 3010, and the Women Veterans Alliance.
Gladding McBean, Lincoln Chamber of Commerce and the City of Lincoln have also given their support of this project.
