Thanksgiving is a time for reflection and showing appreciation. One Nevada Credit Union is proud to donate $6,000 to the Nevada Veterans Memorial Plaza project to express gratitude for the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.

The mission of the Nevada Veterans Memorial Plaza is to preserve and honor the legacy of fallen Nevada service men and women. The organization is building a new memorial plaza for the entire state that will be located at the Sparks Marina in northern Nevada. The memorial will bear the names of all 834 servicemen and women, and those in the future, from all Nevada counties.

“One Nevada is honored to sponsor the Air Force bench area in the Veterans Memorial Plaza,” said Lisa Jansen, Assistant Vice President of Community Relations at One Nevada. “Our credit union started at Nellis Air Force base, and we’ve proudly served the financial needs of the Nevada Air National Guard and Creech Air Force base personnel and civilian employees for many years. We feel so thankful that we are able to support this important community project.”

The Nevada Veterans Memorial Plaza is a privately funded project. They have secured many significant contributions for the multimillion dollar project and continue to seek donations from the community and Nevada businesses.
