Andrew Brennan is a former UH-60 Blackhawk pilot and combat veteran. After departing the Army a little earlier than he’d planned, Andrew ultimately found himself searching for his next calling. A fateful encounter with a group of Vietnam Veterans on their way to visit the memorial wall in DC sparked the inspiration he needed. Andrew is now the Executive Director of the Global War on Terror Memorial Foundation.
For the past two years they have been working diligently on Capitol Hill to gain bipartisan support for an amendment bill to the Commemorative Works Act of 1986 and today, they have successfully introduced two companion bills in the House and Senate: H.R. 873 and S. 926. These bills can pave the way for a sacred place to honor this generation of warriors and all without any taxpayer funding.
GWOTMF exists to ensure that the Veterans of the Global War on Terror experience their future memorial in a timely manner as we recognize that this can be a decade’s long process from the time legislation is enacted to the completion of the memorial itself.
