ND POW/MIA Memorial
The Vietnam Veterans Legacy Vets Motorcycle Club and the Second Brigade Motorcycle Club are seeking your support to build a memorial at the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery. It would honor the 360 men from North Dakota held as prisoners of war or considered missing in action from World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Cold War.
The memorial will consist of granite walls etched with scenes from each conflict and bearing the names of all 360 men considered POW-MIA from North Dakota. It will be set back into the hillside north of the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery visitors center. The names of people who give at least $100 toward the memorial's completion will be listed on a kiosk at the cemetery.

Dogs for Wounded Veterans: To honor the many service men and women who are still suffering from the conflicts of war, Service Dogs for America will have service dogs available to help them lead a more independent life.
A special fundraising effort has been launched to be able to place dogs, with no effort on the recipients’ part, with select disabled veterans of the most recent wars and conflicts, including those in Iraq and Afghanistan and any conflicts stemming from the tragic events of 9/11. Service Dogs for America is advocating a legislative bill that will provide funding for candidates to receive a service dog.
