4th Brigade (Airborne) Memorial Project

The Paratroopers of our 4th Brigade are returning to Fort Richardson from Afghanistan. This is the fourth time since 9/11 that the Soldiers of this elite Tropic Lightning brigade have fought in either Iraq or Afghanistan. A Memorial will be erected at the brigade's home base to honor and remember the service and sacrifices of these brave men and women. Our goal is to have a new Memorial in place when they return in Spring 2018. Please help this project by making a generous donation today. Click here to go to our donations page.

Memorial Fund Goals

25th Infantry Division logoThe 25th Infantry Division Memorial Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and it was set up to raise donations and awareness to honor the Tropic Lightning Division’s accomplishments and its losses in support of World War II, Korea, Vietnam and the Global War on Terrorism.

On Thursday, 06 October 2016, during Tropic Lightning week, the female statue was unveiled at Schofield Barracks. The addition of a Female Warrior is in honor of all the women who have served in the 25th during all wars and especially during the Global War on Terror.

Since the Memorial Fund was formed, we have constructed a memorial at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii and the National Infantry Museum at Ft. Benning, Georgia. We have also assisted the following 25th units: the 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne) Spartan Memorial at Fort Richardson, the 2nd Brigade Combat Team Memorial at Schofield, and the 1st Brigade Combat Team Memorial at Fort Wainwright.

Planning of the 25th Infantry Division Memorial

The Memorial

The Schofield Memorial project was conceived by the commanding officer of the 25th In25th Infantry Division Memorial in Hawaiifantry Division and his staff while stationed in Afghanistan in 2004. MG Eric T. Olson sent word back to Schofield Barracks that he wanted an appropriate memorial to honor the 25th’s Soldiers who were killed in action while serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. His staff indicated they wanted this memorial completed by the time the elements of the Division returned from Afghanistan and Iraq in June 2005.

Female Warrior Statue

MAJ Anthony San Nicholas was tasked with the job of designing the memorial, finding a sculptor for the statues and a contractor for the base of the monument. In addition MAJ San Nicholas was asked to find the funds needed for this project. This fund raising proved to be the most difficult of his tasks. He quickly found that soliciting Soldiers and the general public by active duty personnel was prohibited while on duty. MAJ San Nicholas went to the 25th Infantry Division Association’s annual reunion in September of 2004 at Tucson, AZ to ask for assistance in raising funds. The Association has a membership of over 4000 Veterans and active duty Soldiers that served with the Division in WWII, Korea, Vietnam and the current Global War on Terror (GWOT).
