THE MEMORIAL PARK COMPLETED
10/10/2001 - 07/10/2016 - THE FOUNDATION, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY
The USCENTCOM Memorial Foundation, Inc., was created as a non-profit, federal and Florida State registered organization, in compliance with code 501 [C]  established in 2001. We were publicly funded, and accepted donations for the Park type Memorial at MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, Florida. No taxpayer dollars or Federal grants were used other than the land the Memorial is built on, as supplied by the US Air Force.
The Memorial is about the troops, again we are and were about the “TROOPS”. It is not about specific units, branches of service, order of rank, any rank, our board, or individuals. Our focus was clear and defined, we serve to recognize the “TROOPS” who have paid the ultimate price in service to their country under the control and direction of the AOR of the Central Command. They are all heroes…and heaven never had a rank requirement.
After fifteen years in existence, the Centcom Memorial Foundation has gone as far as it can go bowing to the priorities and needs of our Armed Forces with the extreme changes in security and DOD regulatory policies visually makes the civilian experience impossible, the keynote of the project.
We have simply done all we could do. We wish the very best for those who will follow…in supporting the families of the fallen.
