2 Veterans Tribute Dear Patriot, Kaskaskia College is a premier, world-class institution of higher learning: a place where ethical and instructional standards inspire students to rise to plateaus beyond their initial expectations. Kaskaskia College takes great pride in being a college where values, ethics, and character development are recognized and promoted as important foundations of student success. Enumerating all the student and community benefits of Kaskaskia College would take more space than this page permits. Consequently, we shall focus in on, what we consider one of the most significant innovations an individual college would have the courage to tackle. About six years ago, a new kind of sensitivity surfaced at Kaskaskia College. The heart of the sensitivity was to conceive a method through which all United States Veteran s connected to the Kaskaskia College District could be permanently honored. The second challenge was to design and construct an appropriate structure without using tax dollars and certainly at no cost to the veterans. This vision resulted in the birth of the Veterans Tribute. The all-volunteer Steering Committee energetically set out to raise funding for the first phase. This phase is nearing completion and consists of two walls with more than 25,000 veteran s names permanently engraved in glossy black granite. Immediate future plans are to add three additional walls for the some 40,000 names we have in waiting. The tribute is a work in progress with names for future veterans. The Veterans Tribute Steering Committee seriously needs your financial assistance. To this end, we have designed a FIVE STAR program. The new program guarantees the individual, organization, or business contributors will be remembered in perpetuity. When totally completed the Tribute grounds will hopefully include an education building consisting of a visitor s center, museum, classroom, quiet room, restrooms, a small visual theater, and kiosks with individual veterans stories and history. Please view the Five Star schedule within the brochure and determine how many Stars you want. Also, please imagine the pride you, your family, and all future generations will have in your decision to be a part of building the largest Veterans Tribute of its kind on a college or university campus. We realize the Veterans Tribute at Kaskaskia College will mean different things to different people. The common denominator of the expected thousands who visit annually may well be reverence to those who served, fought, and died for the preservation of our inherited freedoms. Our personal belief is the single ingredient which makes the United States of America the greatest country in the world is Love of our Country. A love so deeply rooted that we, as Americans, are willing to do whatever is necessary in defending our way of life from any who dare threaten it. Time is of essence! If you have been considering a monetary contribution, now is the time. Jump aboard with your most generous gifts as you Follow the Stars. Helping with the construction of the additional three walls will enable us to transfer the thousands of veterans names from the files onto beautiful granite. Patriotically yours, Jim Beasley, Co-Chair Veterans Tribute Project Dr. Jim Underwood, President Kaskaskia College

3 Veterans Tribute An artist rendering of theveterans Tribute ~ It started as a concept that slowly become a reality, thanks to the dedication and commitment of a group of local community residents and veterans. Powered only by the pride shared for the service and sacrifice given by area service men and women, theveterans Tribute Committee moved to create a structure that was worthy of that sacrifice. The Tribute Committee and Kaskaskia College officials at the groundbreaking for phase one of the Tribute. This phase would include the Warriors Court, eagle sculpture, service seals and the first set of names collected.

4 Veterans Tribute THE EAGLE When it came to decide what to place in the center of the Tribute, the committee selected the American Eagle --long the symbol of this country s strength and dignity. A sub-committee then began to review sculptors to design and make this centerpiece. The decision was made to commission Mike Curtis of Idaho. A Vietnam Veteran himself, Curtis has been sculpting the bald eagle since 1971 and considered the foremost sculptor of this wonderful creature. Mike Curtis has been commissioned to create sculptures for veterans memorials across the country, as well as for Presidents and gifts to foreign countries on behalf of our nation. Tribute committee members Don Berdeaux (L) and Dr. Dee Boswell (R) meet with sculptor Mike Curtis and his wife, Marlene at Curtis studio. The Eagle Landed July 23, 2012 Crews lowering eagle sculpture to its base 8/1/2013. Members of theveterans Tribute Committee posing in front of the newly installed eagle sculpture.

5 Veterans Tribute Seals for each branch of the armed forces were placed around the eagle sculpture. The last panel for phase 1 was installed on November 4, ,296 names are featured on the 124 panels.

6 Veterans Tribute Why We Need the Tribute Th e w i l l i n g n e s s o f A m e r i c a s v e t e ra n s t o s a c r i f i c e f o r o u r c o u n t r y h a s e a r n e d t h e m o u r l a s t i n g g ra t i t u d e. - Jeff Miller The contribution of the AmericanVeteran cannot be overstated, the Tribute is not just names on a wall. They are fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, grandchildren. They are nights out with friends, stories about comrades no longer with us. They are faces we cannot, nor will not forget. They are stories we like to tell again and again. Visitors have left wreaths and flowers for loved ones who are named on the wall. A veteran visting the wall for the first time is delighted to find his name among his comrades. Below...Taking time to remember a special veteran The Tribute will allow students, family members, and visitors a connecting link to veterans by providing an honorable tribute, appreciation, to the veterans who have served in preserving our democracy and safety in keeping the dream for freedom alive.

7 Veterans Tribute FUTURE PHASES As the first phase of the Tribute project nears completion the Veterans Tribute Committee has begun to focus on future phases for the Tribute. First and foremost will be the installation of the planned three additional walls in the Warriors Court which will allow for the display of nearly 40,000 additional names. The Committee has started seeking donations and pledges to allow for construction of the second phase. Perhaps the most ambitious phase of the project will then begin. Since the early days of the Tribute education has been a focus of the project. Establishing a site that would provide honor for veterans, but would also help in better educating the public, both young and old about the contributions of these veterans has been paramount. This final phase calls for the construction of an building that will serve as responsitory, a museum and a classroom. This structure will house a computer lab and av equipment for visitors to have access to historical documents, information, artifacts and data on the history of the United States starting with the Declaration of Independence. There is more to do. Fund raising for the Tribute is ongoing and vital to ensure the dream of honoring our area service men and women is complete. NAMING OPPORTUNITIES: The Veterans Tribute Committee has established strict guidelines on the signage and name recognition for the Tribute Project. These guidelines were established to ensure the proper atmosphere and decorum is maintained in honoring those who have given so much on behalf of their country. The Veterans Tribute Committee has also established a number of naming opportunities which allow you, or your company to showcase your support for the Tribute Project. Donors will be recognized with a plaque placed in a visible location.
