Foundation Established, 2001

Middle East,
and all points in between

September 11-14, 2001
The WORLD MEMORIAL concept was incubated by volunteers; serving at the APA UNION Crisis Center.  Mr. Warren Clymer, Art Director of The Godfather (finest NY movie of all times), joined the cause by designing the WORLD MEMORIAL theme.

By the end of September, the organization had debuted on the World Wide Web. Consolations, 9/11 images, and memorial ideas (incorporating surviving WTC iron, museum, education center and park) poured in from around the globe.  

Adding an extra challenge just three weeks into 9/11, Air Force Reservist, JFK B-767 Pilot, and WM Founder was activated for ENDURING FREEDOM. He had 24 hours to report for duty. Over the next 12 months, he commanded a C-5 crew for delivery of troops and supplies directly to the AOR. For more bullets, visit the PRESS ROOM.

2002 International Forum
Based on wishes received from the WM International Forum - A team was forged to design a Ground Zero Memorial.
Subsequently, two hundred professionals, from architects to zoologist, from all corners of the world, joined this worthy cause.
Throughout 2002, WORLD MEMORIAL corresponded with thousands of people solely through the Internet, fax, phone and occasional ham radio.
