We are hereby pleased to announce a new project to be dedicated to the recognition of theCuban-American veterans who have served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America. The project consists of the construction of a monument which will show the official logos of each branch of the armed forces (Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard). Herein, we include information about the project, so that you can appreciate the magnitude of the same.

The monument will be placed on the grounds of  "The South Florida Military Museum and Veterans Memorial" adjacent to the Miami Metro Zoo and the "Rail Road Museum".

We thus give faith and testimony of those who participated in the various wars and military campaigns that are part of the North American history. The participation of Cuban Americans dates back to the war of independence in North America where approximately 1,000 Cuban troops, then as a Spanish colony, were assigned by the Spanish Government to fight against British troops in the southern part of the country known as "Florida Pan Handle" and New Orleans. Since then, the participation of Cuban-Americans includes the following: The Civil War; World War I; World War II; Korea; Viet Nam; The Cold War; Beirut; Panama; Gulf War; Iraq and Afghanistan.

To make this project a reality, we need the economic support of all members, as well as friends, family, and business owners. That is why we ask you humbly for your donation no matter how small, so history collects this recognition of those who defended freedom and just causes of this great nation and in many cases without being American citizens. Please write your check payable to      C. A. V. A. and send it to the address below:

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Thank you and God bless you.
