Fontana, Calif. - The City of Fontana is teaming up with Fontana Veterans organizations to launch a fundraising campaign with a goal of $350,000 to help build the Miller Park Amphitheater Veterans Memorial. Local veterans have wanted a memorial for many years to honor the thousands of Fontana residents with military service. Give a lasting gift this holiday season to help honor past and present veterans with a donation to provide a permanent tribute to our heroes. 

The Veterans Memorial, to be located next to the Miller Park Amphitheater, will be a gathering place for the Fontana community to remember the sacrifices made on our behalf. It will proudly stand to recognize those who have served in the Armed Forces and be an inspiration for future generations. 

The memorial will include eight granite walls with the conflicts Veterans have served in. Each granite wall will include a representative picture, name of the war, dates, number of personnel involved, number killed in action and number wounded. Individual bricks will include the Veteran's name, rank, branch and years of service or a personal message. 

The price of freedom has been, and continues to be, paid by many names. Say thank you to the men and women who have sacrificed everything for our freedom. Danny Marquez, United States Army, urges the public to donate: "It doesn't matter $1, $10, $100 up on up. Whatever you can put in, you're a part of it...and that's all it takes. That's what it's all about."
