LA JOLLA (KUSI) — The Mount Soledad National Veterans Memorial Association is looking for help to maintain and improve Mount Soledad.

They launched their capital campaign called the "Veterans Beacon of Freedom" campaign at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club Monday night and the public is now officially invited to help maintain and improve the veterans memorial.

After 27 years of lawsuits, the Mt. Soledad Memorial Association is the official owner of the national memorial.

The association just announced their fundraising drive which is aimed at raising enough money to maintain and upgrade the memorial. The money raised will be used for operations, expansion of education programs and future capital improvements to enhance the visitors experience.
