We Are Proud to Honor America's Veterans

November 11, 2020 - by Lautman Maska Neill & Company

On this Veteran's Day, we proudly honor all those who have served our nation through military service. Lautman Maska Neill & Company has a long history of helping fundraise to build memorials, especially those to veterans, as well as museums.

This legacy began when Kay Lautman launched the campaign to raise the funds for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial – one of the most visited public sites in DC. She signed onto the project when it was just the longshot idea of one Vietnam veteran, who had no funding at all, and no government backing, but advocated tirelessly for this cause at a time when it was deeply unpopular. Today it’s one of the most striking and moving memorials on the mall.

Lautman also helped raise the funds to build the Women in Military Service to America Memorial (in Arlington, VA), which honored women who served despite the huge disparity in treatment of women. And we helped raise funds to build the Japanese American Memorial to Patriotism during World War II (near Union Station), which not only honored Japanese American veterans, but educates the public about their unjust incarceration and treatment during that time.

In fact, many of the museums that line the Mall in Washington, DC – the United States Holocaust Museum, the National Museum of the American Indian and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial — stand as a living legacy to Kay Lautman's good, tough advice. As a long-time colleague Jennie Thompson charmingly noted in The Agitator, “If it weren’t for Kay, the Mall would still be mostly grass and woodland.”

Lautman also helped fundraise for the building of the National Japanese American Museum (Los Angeles, CA) … the National Constitution Center (Philadelphia, PA) … as well as our current client the National Museum of the Marine Corps (Quantico, VA).

We continue to look for opportunities to help promote causes that matter, especially those that may be overlooked.
