Veterans Committee Chairman Jason Schlegel says CBC is looking for a creation that is timeless, gender neutral, and captures the spirit of service of veterans.
“We really want the piece to speak to all generations of veterans that are still alive to include Vietnam-era veterans, any remaining World War Two veterans, Korean War veterans and possibly future veterans.”
CBC hopes to raise $75,000 for the project through private donations made to the CBC Foundation. Schlegel says if they can do for it less, swell.
The 400 veterans currently enrolled at CBC will get to vote on the two finalists. The committee, which is made up of students, faculty, and staff, will then pick the winner in June. If everything goes right, the monument will be ready by Veterans’ Day November 11.
