The Strank Project evolved through the efforts of these Cambria County veterans groups:

  • Veterans Memorial Monument, Inc.
  • Franklin VFW
  • Conemaugh Valley Veterans
  • Marine Corps League Detachment 287

The groups were brought together and the coordinating vision for The Strank Project was provided by Robert Eyer, a Viet Nam veteran and managing partner of Wessel and Company, CPA. He was aptly assisted by Claudine Seitz, a personable, dedicated and highly organized professional. The Strank Project video, Our Flag Still Waves, was produced by WIX PIX Productions, Inc., Dale Wicks, writer-director.

We are grateful to all who are helping The Strank Project in so many different ways.
