"The Legacy Project"
to Honor the Fallen
Get Involved Today!
Service, Honor, Sacrifice
A tribute to New Yorks eleven Capital Region Counties Veterans and their families. Albany, Columbia, Fulton, Greene, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Warren and Washington. Our goal is to honor our regions fallen while creating an environment in which Veterans and their families can share their experiences, share their emotions, and feel that they are not alone. The Capital Region Veterans Memorial will be an educational resource center for our youth to learn about and comprehend the historical reasons and results of the 7 campaigns. It will be a much-needed place to re-foster patriotism for our country and respect for our freedoms, our flag, and the people who fought for and defended these rights.
A tribute to Capital Region Veterans and their families.
The "Legacy Project" will be a landmark destination for our region and will include a Welcome Center, and Veteran's Cafe. The Cafe will be an integral part of the facility and is intended to be a place where Veterans, their families, and the public can relax, make friends and obtain information. The goal of the project is to create an environment where Veterans can share ideas, share their pain and joy and see that they are not alone.
Our mission is to create a respite in which all Veterans, their families, and ordinary citizens could experience a place of welcome, camaraderie, remembrance and even vindication. A place of solitude, comfort, and peace that allows Veterans and their families to perhaps "heal" the invisible wounds of war.
There is a six-acre plot of land at the intersection of Dutch Meadows Lane and Rt 50 in Glenville, NY. The future “Legacy Park” will include a Veterans Resource Center with computer and internet access inside the home. A Veterans Cafe' inside our detached quonest hut. The Memorials with historical elements and battlefield crosses for each campaign. A pond, and an amphitheater.
