About the GWOT Memorial Foundation

Our Mission

The GWOT Memorial Foundation leads the efforts to build the National GWOT Memorial in our nation’s capital to commemorate and honor the members of the Armed Forces who served in support of our nation’s longest war, especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Consistent with its mission, the Foundation will recognize and salute the service and sacrifices of all who served in defense of the nation in this conflict, as well as their families and friends.

Our Purpose

The GWOT Memorial Foundation seeks to build a tangible symbol of the sacrifices made by fallen U.S. service members and their families while they were supporting the Global War on Terror.

The GWOT Memorial Foundation started with a small group of like minded veterans and spouses who came together to honor the service and sacrifice of our nations military and all who supported them. West Point grad and Army veteran Andrew Brennan was responsible for the initial organization of the GWOT Memorial Foundation and led the organization for the first three years.
