The California Wall of Honor…
now sits in a dark, locked building in Old Sacramento
The California Wall of Honor
Dedicated to all Californians who made the ultimate sacrifice
for our nation and state in the Global War on Terrorism
In July, 2006, the California Military History Foundation dedicated a beautiful black marble monument called the “California Wall of Honor” to honor military service members from California who have lost their lives since September 11, 2001 in the Global War On Terrorism. Since becoming Sacramento’s Mayor, Kevin Johnson, has presided over several wreath-laying ceremonies on Veteran’s Day at the Museum. Since that time, more names of fallen California Veterans were added each month reflecting California’s losses in the War on Terrorism.
However, that process has ended and the monument now stands alone in a dark, locked
building that once housed the California Military Museum. On March 14, 2014, the actions of the State of California forced the closure of the military museum that displayed thousands of military artifacts.
For over 43 years California’s Military Artifacts were maintained, protected, and displayed by the California Military Foundation (a California non-profit, public benefit Corporation). During this period, the Museum served tens of thousands of visitors. The Museum Foundation continually upgraded the displays and exhibits and preserved the legacy of California’s rich military history.
Now, you can help the Foundation to once again update and display the “California Wall of Honor” in remembrance all who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our Nation and State…
