After Nick's death, the Foundation was formed in hopes of recognizing those special operators who died during, or as a result of, military freefall parachute operations; and those members who have died supporting these operations. The Foundation has been working with the Randolph Rose Collection to create the memorial the statue is currently in the clay mold status. We are hoping the bronze casting will be complete by summer of 2024.
We have also been actively seeking a partnership in the development and placement of the memorial. Currently, we are sourcing a pedastal for the statue and investigating fundraisers to pay for it.
If you would like to submit the name of your loved one, teammate or friend please contact us. As this list will be ever evolving, we are researching solutions to this problem.
The foundation supports and coordinates an annual memorial run, and monetary gifts from private individuals or from organizations. The memorial location will be in Yuma, Arizona at the Military FreeFall school. The exact location will be determined by our partnership with the schoolhouse personnel.
