Brian Bill, a US Navy SEAL and native of Stamford, CT, gave his life in defense of this great nation on August 6, 2011 when the U.S. helicopter in which he was flying was shot down near Kabul, Afghanistan. Watch the Video >
The primary focus for all initial activities will be the creation of the memorial. The monument will be placed in a downtown Stamford, CT location which is to be determined.
The Brian Bill Memorial Fund – A CT non-profit corporation, has been established to create a monument that will honor Brian Bill and all soldiers who sacrificed their lives during the Global War on Terror.
Since last month's launching of fundraising efforts for a city memorial to Bill, Sasser, Mayor Michael Pavia, Bill's family and others are promoting the fourth annual Thunder on the Sound Motorcycle Ride and Family Barbeque this month, which will benefit the planned monument. All proceeds of the Sunday ride will go to the Brian Bill Memorial Fund, which is aiming to raise $350,000 to build a permanent memorial to Bill and other veterans who fought or died in the war in Afghanistan or Iraq and other counterterrorism operations.
