Operation Democracy was approached by Mayor Jean Quetier of Sainte Mere Eglise and Susan Eisenhower; to spearhead a campaign to permanently install (during D-Day 2021 and 2022) two major bronze sculptures in prominent places in the middle of the village.
In reciprocity for France’s gift to the United States of the Statue of Liberty, we are honored to join with the National American Legion and their recent “RESOLUTION #15” to gather support and participation from all 13,000 American Legion Posts across America to raise funds to have the renowned sculptor Pablo Eduardo create monuments to our hometown hero and the Founder of the American Legion, Teddy Roosevelt, Jr. and to the courageous architect and leader of “Operation Overlord”, our General and President Eisenhower.
As we provided the foundation for the Statue of Liberty, so will Sainte Mere Eglise provide the foundations for these monuments.
Bronze and copper from the original Statue of Liberty gleaned from its restoration and preserved by Rick Stocks will be used.
We encourage all DONATIONS!!
Miniature of the sculptures will soon be available.
PLAN A TRIP TO NORMANDY DURING D-DAY WEEK!
