The Veterans Memorial Park of America is raising funds for the latest project in the Never Forget Gardens. The organization is planning to install a Freedom Circle to honor all five branches of the military.  
“Your contribution will make an impact whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps,” says Treasurer Angela Norris.  
The circle will have five flag poles with the branches of service flags and five monuments of the history of the branches — the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and the Coast Guard. Engraved memorial bricks will go around the outside of the circle. 
The 15.52-acre Veterans Memorial Park of America is located at 6354 James B. White South, Whiteville. The purpose of the park is to honor past, present, and future veterans for the service to our country.   
Donations can be made in the link on Norris’s personal Facebook page or by mail at P.O. Box 2046, Whiteville, N.C 28472. For more information about the organization, call 910.840.3848.
