DEDICATION OF DORIS MILLER MEMORIAL

DECEMBER 7th, 2018 PEARL HARBOR DAY

300 Martin Luther King Boulevard, Waco Texas

 


October 2015   The beginning of final design planning where we encountered many hurdles to climb, and saw our original costs escalate, but we have continued on with our mission to raise our final funding for the memorial scheduled for dedication for December 7th 2018

Doris Miller was a cook in the United States Navy noted for his bravery during the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. He was the first African American to be awarded the Navy Cross, the third highest honor awarded by the U.S. Navy at the time. Doris is a native son of Waco, Texas, who seeks to honor and remember him with a memorial site and sculpture on the Brazos River in downtown Waco.

Please consider becoming a part of this effort to remember this important American.
