The Memorial features a Fallen Warriors Memorial Wall of Names recognizing those who gave their life either during combat or from wounds incurred during combat. In addition, the Memorial also features a Walk of Honor brick walkway leading up to and surrounding the Fallen Warrior Monument.

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.
