The Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) on Thursday approved a site at the National Mall to construct a monument to fallen journalists, the Fallen Journalists Memorial Foundation said in a Monday press release.
“I want to express my appreciation to the CFA for their diligent review of our site selection study and endorsement of such a preeminent and historically significant site,” Fallen Journalists Memorial Foundation President Barbara Cochran stated. “The location of this memorial on the National Mall in direct line of sight of the U.S. Capitol will underscore the significance and value our nation places on press freedom and those who died in service to that cause.”
