Fallen Warriors Memorial Project

Fallen Warriors Memorial Project


The Fallen Warriors Memorial Project is spearheaded by a group of local Tri-City Area Veterans and is a project of the City of Morgan City. A memorial to our Fallen Warriors will be installed in the new Cypress Park located adjacent to the Morgan City Municipal Auditorium and is expected to cost $150,000. This unique and permanent tribute will honor the ultimate sacrifice of those men and women of the Tri-City Area of Morgan City, Berwick and Patterson, Louisiana and will express the everlasting gratitude of its citizens.

The Memorial will feature a Fallen Warriors Memorial Wall of Names to recognize those who died either during combat or from wounds incurred during combat. In addition, the Memorial will also feature a Walk of Honor brick walkway leading up to and surrounding the Fallen Warrior Monument. The Fallen Warriors Memorial Complex dedication ceremony is slated for Veteran Day, November 11, 2014.

In addition to the provisions of in-kind contributions, including site preparations, the City of Morgan City is pleased to collaborate with St. Mary Parish's premiere philanthropic organization, the St. Mary Parish Foundation, to receive private, tax-deductible contributions to fund this noble and inspiring memorial. St. Mary Parish Foundation is an affiliate of Community Foundation of Acadiana and has its own local board of directors, specifically for the benefit of St. Mary Parish.

The City of Morgan City is further pleased to announce that 100% of your gift will directly benefit the Fallen Warriors Memorial Project as Fab-Con, Inc is graciously sponsoring this project and covering the administrative costs.
