The Memorial Mile is National Monument that is in the process of being built, to honor and remember military members who have lost their War at Home, due to suicide and homelessness.
MEMORIAL MILE MONUMENT
Sadly, far too many families have lost a wonderful wife, mother & friend, father, son, or husband to the lingering curse of war we call the war at home. Veteran suicide is a national tragedy happening at the alarming rate of 22 per day. These War at Home, casualties exceed the number of casualties of actual armed conflict with the enemy by staggering numbers. There are approximately 7,000 US military personnel who have been killed in combat operations since 9/11. In stark comparison 22 per day over the same period we have lost 170,000in the war at home. Yet somehow these casualties go unrecognized with a national memorial
The Memorial Mile will be a place for family, friends, and battle buddies to remember their heroes lost in the War at home. 52 Yellow granite monuments will hold the names of these heroes. 52 eight-foot-tall granite monuments representing all 50 states, DC and the territories spaced along the one-mile nature trail.
Carved on these walls are the names of the more than 170,000 heroes who have died in the War at Home through-out U.S. history, dating back to the first known death.
This moment will not be displayed in Washington D.C. with other monuments, this will be displayed here in Pennsylvania, in the Pocono Mountains on land which is owned by a Veterans Nonprofit Org VALOR Clinic Foundation. The memorial mile will be ever-changing. New names of fallen heroes will be added each spring on Memorial Day.
