To this end, the Memorial for All Veterans of the Brazos Valley, Inc. was chartered as a non-profit corporation by the State of Texas on July 17, 2000. This memorial is unique in that it honors all veterans from all eras and all branches of service: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine.

To further this purpose and accomplish the mission of the Board of Directors, we adopt this formal long-range strategic plan to accomplish the following specific objectives;

1. COMPLETE all remaining individual war memorials by July 4, 2026; the 250th anniversary of the United States Declaration of Independence.
2. ESTABLISH a financial endowment to ensure perpetual maintenance and repairs as needed.
3. DEVELOP a public recognition of the Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial as the preeminent memorial dedicated to all veterans throughout American history.

This plan represents the input, support and, most importantly, the commitment from the members of the Board, past and present. Much progress has been made over the past 14 years to develop the memorial into a unique educational site that benefits the community and serves as an attraction for out of town visitors. Now, a renewed commitment and unified effort by this Board is required to complete the mission as stated.
