GAF Donates Roofing Material to Preserve World War II Training Camp

GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, is pleased to donate quality roofing materials to support the preservation of Camp Toccoa at Currahee, a historic landmark in Georgia where 6,000 men trained for World War II. Timberline HD® Shingles and GAF accessories were installed atop a 6,700 square foot pavilion that will be used to honor all veterans and active-duty military, as well as host events and celebrations.


“GAF is honored to donate product to Camp Toccoa as a display of gratitude for our active and retired troops,” stated Megan Filiaggi, senior manager of marketing communications at GAF. “We support the Camp’s mission to provide facilities for public education and remembrance of the ‘Toccoa Men’ who trained as paratroopers on this site.”


Additional renovations at Camp Toccoa are currently underway to protect the site and its natural environment for future generations. The Camp’s rich history can be seen in the television series Band of Brothers, and inspired characters portrayed in the film Saving Private Ryan.


"If not for corporate partners like GAF, this project would not have gotten off the ground. I can't say enough about the professionalism and true willingness to help us with this project by everyone that I came in contact with at GAF. Again, we say thank you,” said Patrick Hall of Camp Toccoa.  


GAF continues to honor veterans through several ongoing initiatives such as their Roofs for Troops military discount and Hire a Hero veteran training program. For more information, visit or
