AMVETS Post 1776 Tallahassee Bell Tower Project

You can help us create a beautiful addition to the Tallahassee National Cemetery!

AMVETS Post 1776 mission is to honor and support veterans daily. This includes proper and honor interment. To complete this mission AMVETS needs your help to raise $100,000 to install and maintain a Bell Tower at the Tallahassee National Cemetery. This funding provides a lasting memorial paying respect to those who have served our Country from WWII to our current wars.

Our proposed AMVETS bell tower for the Tallahassee National Cemetery will have a catalog of over 700 songs to include all military service songs. It will have the capability to play these songs on demand with plans for it to play Taps at days end in tribute to all veterans who have served our great nation, especially those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

 

You can play a crucial role in honoring and supporting our veterans from WWII to the current wars.

You can help us provide a lasting memorial paying respect to those who have bravely served our country.

We're building a beautiful and iconic bell tower which will be located at the Tallahassee National Cemetery.
