The "San Diego Monument" was put in place September 11, 1999.
Now we call upon you. Please help us! We are the Marines! We are the honorable men and women who put our lives on the line when our "Commander in Chief" called upon us. We are the ones who thought of "God", "Country", and "Corps", instead of Canada. I thank you for your help and support. And by the way, if a family member or loved one was a Marine, consider purchasing a brick as a way of honoring their service."
We must sell bricks now to finalize our plans, Please print the order form attached, return to National Headquarters with check or money order, for your order. Dont be left out because of procrastination. Active duty Marines who wish to make payments can contact their Chapter reps at the base. Full payment must be received, within ninety (90) days. Retirees should contact National Headquarters.
Each brick will be imprinted with three lines (15 characters per line) and laid along side the walkway. You may purchase as many bricks as you like by filling out the donation form. If you served at both Recruit Depots, you may want to have a brick at each location. Bricks may be purchased in memory of a friend of the Association, for an active duty DI, or in honor of DIs of a particular recruit company (such as DIs of "F" Company, 2nd Bn, MCRD-Parris Island). You can designate which Depot you want your brick(s) placed.
The requested donation is $100.00 for a single brick. If you cannot purchase a brick, a donation in any denomination will be greatly appreciated. Lets all get our bricks today!
