The City Council’s Memorials and Dedications Committee is just about ready to start up a fundraising campaign in support of a monument for female veterans at Fort Taber.

The committee met Tuesday night, and resolved to set up an account for the monument as soon as next week.

Committee Chairman and Ward Four Councilor Bruce Duarte tells WBSM News such a monument is fitting, since women have served alongside men throughout our nation’s history.

The monument will cost between $10,000 and $15,000 to build.

The Camara family has donated $2,000 to the cause, funds that were left over from a monument created for Army Staff Sgt. Joseph Camara, who was killed in Iraq.

The committee is working with Poyant Signs to design the monument.
