Military Honor Garden

MilitaryHonorGarden_Eagle.jpgAs the Mayville State University Foundation embarks on a new Military Honor Garden project, we invite you to honor a veteran in a very unique way! Let's remember the efforts of our proud and strong veterans for they bravely fought to achieve our country's liberty and freedom.

The MSU Foundation is currently working to raise funds for a new memorial garden which will be located on the south side of the Edson and Margaret Larson Alumni and Leadership Center. This monument will feature a life-sized bronze eagle in flight sculpture (pictured at right), flags, night lighting, and memorial gardens surrounded by sidewalks. All five branches of the military will be represented on granite plaques. There are several opportunities to pay tribute to a special veteran with your gift.

Any gift will help fund this project and would be very much appreciated! A gift of $500.00 or more will provide you with a granite plaque on which will display your honored veteran's name, military branch, and year(s) of service. It will be placed on the memorial walk.

Please join us in building a permanent tribute to honor those who have served and remember those fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, sons, and daughters who have fallen in service.
