The actual groundbreaking is scheduled for Noon, rain or shine. The memorial site is located west of the cemetery. The public is invited to celebrate the coming of the one-of-a-kind monument which, when completed, will feature life-size bronze figures and several murals that will take visitors deep into battle scenes from America’s past conflicts and will honor all branches of U.S. Armed Services. 

NCAG will be serving grilled hamburgers and hotdogs at the site. James O’Keefe, Commander U.S. Navy (Ret.) will preside over the event. Sketches of this unique work of art will be available to view.  You can also meet the lead sculptor, Troy Muller, art director of NCAG.  A video of other NCAG projects will be shown at their gallery on Kimballton’s Main Street after the event. 

The event will also be an opportunity for you to become a member of NCAG, in order to keep up with the progress of the projects throughout the coming years.
