Lasley, a Marietta resident who served with the 1-108th Cavalry in Iraq and Afghanistan while on military leave from Allconnect, said he is grateful for the generosity of everyone who has donated. The group has raised $35,000 toward their goal of $50,000 and will break ground in June. The 13 names engraved on the bronze memorial represent the fallen heroes from both Operation Iraqi Freedom (2005-06) and Enduring Freedom (2009-10).
“We are grateful for Josh’s service to the military over the years, and Allconnect is proud to support this memorial to the fallen who gave the last full measure of devotion to their country,” said Mark Miller, Allconnect CEO.
