Remembering Our Fallen
Traveling Photo Memorial of Nebraska's Fallen on Display
“We must remember these American Heroes and speak their names when we see their family members. We can never forget those who sacrificed everything for our freedom,” said Bill Williams, co-creator of the memorial. “While this memorial is about those who have died, it was created for the living…to help the families in their grief, while reminding the rest of us of the terrible price paid for our freedom by our current generation of military.”
A very emotional memorial, “Remembering Our Fallen,” is a stark reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by Nebraskans killed in The War on Terror while wearing our country’s uniform in a war zone. The photo memorial, which includes military and personal photos of each of Nebraska’s Fallen, is traveling throughout the state and will be coming to Ashland-Greenwood Public Schools.
This memorial and 18 other state memorials representing 60% of our country’s Fallen since 9/11/01, have been created by Patriotic Productions, a non-profit organization headquartered in Omaha. The goal is to complete a national traveling memorial that will include all of our country’s Fallen from The War on Terror. More information at: RememberingOurFallen.org or PatrioticProductions.org.
“Remembering Our Fallen” will be on display from Monday, November 6th to Saturday, November 11th at Ashland-Greenwood High School.
Hours: Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Saturday, 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
No admission charged thanks to American Legion Post 129, VFW Post 9776, and Ashland-Greenwood Public Schools for financially sponsoring the memorial to bring it to Ashland, Nebraska.
Memorials have been completed for 19 states; if you would like to host or sponsor a memorial, please visit the “Get Involved” page at: RememberingOurFallen.org.
