The Governor established the Governor's Commission on Maryland Military Monuments in January 1989 (Executive Order 01.01.1989.02). The Commission inventories Maryland military monuments. Each monument is identified by name, date of construction, location, and original sponsorship. Current ownership of both the monument and its site is noted with a complete description of the monument, including its construction materials; condition; theme; inscriptions, if any; and who is responsible for maintenance.

The Commission determines the cost to restore damaged monuments and secures funds for restoration. In addition, the Commission assigns responsibility for the maintenance of each monument and prepares educational and tourism materials for public distribution.

Appointed by the Governor, the Commission consists of up to twenty-one members. The Secretary of State serves as chair.
