Pentagon Memorial Fund
Kurt M. Campbell, co-chair of the board of directors and co-founder of the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), served as the chairman of the executive committee of the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial Fund that helped design, raise private funds for, build, and ultimately launch the new national landmark on September 11, 2008, seven years after the tragic attack on our national military headquarters. "It was an honor to be able to give back to the families of the fallen and to help create a place for remembrance and healing for those directly touched by the tragedy and the nation as a whole," said Campbell. "The Pentagon Memorial with its catilevered benches and intricate steams will now assume its rightful place among Washington's powerful memorials and evocative monuments."
Wounded Warrior Project
CNAS has partnered with the Wounded Warrior Project for a fundraising opportunity during our second annual conference, "Pivot Point: New Directions for American Security" on June 11, 2008. The Wounded Warrior Project provides programs and services to severely injured service members during the time between active duty and transition to civilian life. We are privileged to assist in programs that promote care for our servicemen.
Walter Reed Army Medical Center
In June 2008, CNAS staff traveled to Walter Reed Army Medical Center and toured the facilities in addition to hosting a barbeque at the Malogne House for servicemen and their families. CNAS looks forward to a continued relationship with Walter Reed to provide support in the future.
Benefit for the American Red Cross Response to the Japan Earthquake & Pacific Tsunami
CNAS was pleased to serve as an event partner for the benefit "One Night for Nippon: A Benefit for the American Red Cross Response to the Japan Earthquake & Pacific Tsunami." The Embassy of Japan was an honorary sponsor and special guests included the CEO of the American Red Cross of the National Capital Region, Linda Mathes, and Ichiro Fujisaki, the Ambassador of Japan. The event raised over $20,000 for the relief effort.
Marine Toys for Tots Foundation
During the past several holiday seasons, CNAS participated in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, collecting new, unwrapped toys to distribute to children in the local community. With the help of generous toy donations from friends of CNAS, the Center was successful in helping the Toys for Tots program continue its long-standing tradition of providing a message of hope to less fortunate youth.
