When I conceived this project I knew it would cost more money than I could provide. But all it took was one newspaper story in the Patriot-News and donations came flooding in. Look over the list below and you will see a cross section of Pennsylvania, all stepping up and contributing to make this project happen. Big companies, small companies, veterans groups, and ordinary citizens, all doing what they could to help. Many contributors had some connection to the Soldier or Marine they sponsored.

To all of you my sincere appreciation and thanks.
