Today is Veteran’s Day: 11-11-11. America is celebrating those who currently serve and have served previously in the United States Military.
In Waco, TX we especially honor our hometown hero, Doris Miller. On December 7, 1941 Doris Miller earned the Navy Cross with acts of bravery and heroism at Pearl Harbor. He was the nation’s first celebrated hero of World War II.
The Cultural Arts of Waco is preparing to build a lasting memorial commemorating Doris Miller on the east bank of the Brazos River in his home town of Waco, TX.
The Doris Miller Memorial project is a community effort. Contributions towards this project sponsored by the Cultural Arts of Waco are greatly appreciated.
We would like as many people as possible to take pride and ownership in the beautiful sculpture that will add to the beauty of Waco’s landscape on a two acre memorial site on the Brazos River. Your contribution will enable the construction of a monument of national significance and historical importance.
For credit card donations, please visit our website at www.wacoartsfest.org. On Dec. 7, 2011, all donors will be recognized in the Waco Tribune Herald.
