Taunton Global War on Terror Committee (G.W.O.T.)


The Taunton Global War on Terror Committee (G.W.O.T.) was formed to find a proper site and erect a lasting memorial to all the men and women who have served in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Recently, a site was approved on historic Church Green to erect a monument to these brave men and women.


The monument will include six flag poles and a commemorative brick walkway and will be located adjacent to the Vietnam Memorial Fountain.


We are now in the fundraising phase of our project, which will culminate with a beautiful ceremony tentatively planned for Spring 2012. We, the GWOT Committee, hope you will consider donating to this beautiful black granite monument.
