The Foundation supports three memorials:
- Colorado Freedom Memorial Monument
- North Country Honor’s the Mountain Monument
- Tennessee Pass Memorial Monument
The Foundation’s first and most significant project was the erection of an impressive red granite monolith atop Tennessee Pass, Colorado, not far from the wartime site of Camp Hale and the Cooper Hill ski training area.
This Memorial Monument was completed in 1959 and was dedicated on Memorial Day of that year. Upon its gleaming surface are etched the names of our 992 comrades (this number increased to 1001 in 2009 as a result of the Database Project research) who made the supreme sacrifice on Kiska and in Italy.
Since 1959 a Memorial Service has been conducted annually on the Nationally observed Memorial Day. Additional memorial services are held on special occasions.
Memorials abroad (Italy)
The Foundation provides funds for flowers to be placed every Memorial Day at the grave sites of the 327 soldiers of the 10th lost in battle and who remain interred at the American Military Cemetery near Florence, Italy.
The Foundation arranges for a wreath to be displayed at the official Memorial Day ceremonies. Flowers are also provided for monuments honoring the 10th Mountain Division erected by Italian villages in the battle zone.
