About the GWOT Memorial Foundation

Our Mission

The mission of the Global War on Terror Memorial Foundation is to provide the organizing, fundraising, and coordinating efforts to build a memorial on the National Mall in Washington D.C. to honor our fallen warriors, US services members, their families, and all those who supported our nation’s longest war.

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.

West Point grad and Army veteran Andrew Brennan came up with the idea when he bumped into a group of veteran cyclists on their way to D.C. for the annual Rolling Thunder ride. He was responsible for the initial organization of the Global War on Terror Memorial Foundation and led the organization for the first three years.

We are always looking for feedback on designing the memorial itself. We are at the beginning of this process and have outlined some of the principles we believe should be represented in the final construction.
