Chad Longell, one of the founders of the Global War on Terrorism Memorial Foundation, regularly passes the monuments scattered across the National Mall in Washington, D.C. He’s watched the tourists and veterans who drift through the memorials paying their respects to those who have served.
“You see how much healing comes from it and it really unifies a group of people,” Longell said.
Originally from High Bridge in Hunterdon County, Longell is currently in the Army reserves and has served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. The army veteran is on a mission to build a memorial honoring the servicemen and women he fought alongside during the war on terror.
