Flagpole Memorial Update


Current APhA Headquarters Flagpole Memorial Site (Photo by: A. Mendez)

The APhA Flagpole Memorial was installed in 1948 and rises from a marble and granite base with a sculptured bronze drum depicting six uniformed pharmacists from the Revolutionary War to World War II. Additions were made to the site in 1992 which form marble seats adjacent to the flagpole and a bronze relief depicting uniformed male and female pharmacists who served in the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force during the Korean, Vietnam, and Persian Gulf wars.

However in 2001 and 2003 the U.S. found itself in military combat again and the memorial needs to be updated. Pharmacists, members of their families, pharmacies, pharmaceutical associations, and the pharmaceutical industry are urged to support this memorial update project through contributions or $25 to $1,000. Corporate contributions are also welcome.

Contributors have the option of designating the name of a pharmacist who served in the Armed Forces or simply supporting the project to honor all the great men and women pharmacists who served our country courageously. The names of all contributors will also be appropriately recognized.

With your help, we can honor those pharmacists who served in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Don't wait! Act today!
