Memorial Wall in Honor of all who gave their lives to preserve our freedom and our liberty!
Dear Daughters: The Colonel Arthur Forbis Chapter, North Carolina Society Daughters of the American Revolution and The William D. Hammer Post of the Veterans of Foreign War in Gibsonville, North Carolina are constructing a wall memorializing servicemen and women from the Alamance County side of Gibsonville and the Guilford County side of Gibsonville, Elon, McLeansville, Whitsett and Julian, North Carolina. Those to be memorialized are all servicemen and women killed in action in any war from the Revolutionary War to present. The Memorial Wall will be 4’ high and 2’ thick. It will be in three six foot sections in an open wing design. Names will be placed on the top of the wall. Principal funding for the Memorial Wall will be the sale of engraved bricks. The bricks come in two sizes: 4”x 8” and 8”x 8”. Bricks can be bought by any person, family or business.
Additionally, donors of individual components will be recognized by name in the paver field or on the component. Names for inclusion are names of KIA’s ( Killed In Action) they may be submitted to the VFW Post for inclusion in the Memorial Wall. Proof of service and death required. The location of the Memorial Wall will be at the northwest end of the East Green in Gibsonville, North Carolina.
Proof of death and proof of service are required for all fallen on the Wall. Colonel Arthur Forbis DAR Chapter will be the DAR Chapter to contact for any Memorial Wall related questions and submittals.
In Honor of all who gave their lives to preserve our freedom and our liberty.
