We thank the following sponsors of the Idaho Gold Star Families Memorial Monument and Plaza. Without the support of these organizations and individuals, this tribute to Idaho’s fallen service men and women and their loved ones would not be possible:
Ken Pape & Family, Nathan Wells & Family and Pat Pape & Family generously donated the land for the Idaho Gold Star Families Memorial Monument and Plaza, and is providing supporting engineering and planning services. The monument will be located in Northgate District, a multi-use planned community on the north end of Pocatello.
