The Board of Directors has decided to continue the Heritage
Fund. In the past, the Heritage Fund has been used to pay for
96th Infantry Division monuments, plaques, flags or Heritage
Exhibits at the following locations: National Memorial
Cemetery of the Pacific, Honolulu, HI (monument);
Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, VA (monument and
memorial tree); National Museum of the Pacific War,
Fredericksburg, TX (plaque); Douglas MacArthur
Memorial, Norfolk, VA (division flag); Fort Douglas
Military Museum, Salt Lake City, UT (Okinawa battle
exhibit); Fort Douglas Headquarters Building, 96TH RRC US
Army Reserve (Leyte Battle Exhibit); Camp White Museum,
White City, OR (96TH Division Exhibit); Camp San
Luis Obispo, San Luis Obispo, CA (96TH Division
Exhibit); Fort Lewis Military Museum, Fort Lewis, WA
(Leyte and Okinawa Battle Exhibit).
It is the intent of the Deadeye Association to continue to
establish exhibits and/or monuments which will help to
preserve the heritage of units which have worn the Deadeye
Double Diamond patch during World War II and since that time.
This would include units who have served in Iraq or
Afghanistan or in Desert Storm. Another possible effort could
be the placing of a plaque or monument at the Infantry School
at Fort Benning, GA. Another possibility is a monument or
plaque at the 96TH Regional Readiness Command. Headquarters.
This fund is being handled by John Reed and Don Dencker. Your
contribution will be greatly appreciated.
