Wasn't even aware this was an issue, thanks for posting. No, it would be an absolute travesty to allow this to happen. Women have played a vital role in the military for as long as there has been a military. If funding is an issue, ALL military organizations need to step up with information and funding campaigns to make the public aware of the situation. I think that most Americans aren't aware that most memorials are run and maintained by nonprofit organizations. The assumption is that the government is footing the bills.

Lt Col John (Jack) Christensen I agree most believe tax payers foot the bill. They have new leadership so I hope they can get the word out to garner support.

Heck no. I was just there inside that Memorial this summer for a reception party before the USMC Sunset Parade when one of the friends was the guest of honor for the parade. The memorial stands not only to honor our sisters-in-arms but more importantly, as a beacon to women that they are able to hang with men.
