The goal of the Stafford Armed Services Memorial Commission is to facilitate the design and construction of a memorial that provides a place for families and citizens to honor the fallen from all United States wars. The PUSH studio concept, Marching for Freedom, draws inspiration from the branches of Military Service and the common thread of marching in cadence and formation. The memorial signifies this marching in formation to physically depict the many wars in which Stafford County citizens have served, securing national and international freedom. The war monuments marche uphill on site following the natural topography. A silhouette of fighting soldiers etched on a large marble surface creates the terminus of the march at the highest elevation of the site.
