Adding a War Memorial Listing

Creating a submission is easy. If you’re using any type of mobile device such as a smart phone, I Pad or tablet to make a submission follow these easy steps.

Find a war memorial(s) in your community, town or city and while standing in front of the memorial log in to www.memorialdayfoundation.org and on the home page go to the blue button marked “Help us build the National War Memorial Registry”. Click on the button. Then click on “Add your listing here”

Follow these instructions:

  1. You should take a picture facing the memorial head on with the sun in front of you. If the sun is behind you take the picture from either side of the memorial so your shadow is not in the picture. Take a picture of the entire memorial with some foreground in the picture. If there is more than one component to the memorial try to get them all in one picture. If you can not get them all in one picture take separate pictures of each component. Some war memorials are indoors and you will have to adjust accordingly. You may also check our examples of memorials and take a similar picture.
  2. Fill out all of the information that is asked for as best you can. Be aware that the city, state and zip code fields are mandatory.
  3. “Add the Image” by going to your saved photos.

Al l submissions are checked for proper content before being added to the registry. Please be patient when looking for your submission.

We are always looking for a better photo or more accurate information on our nation’s war memorials. Please submit your submission for our approval.
