Traveling memorial to be on display in Webster City
Exhibit honors fallen Iowa soldiers killed in War on Terror
“Remembering Our Fallen” will be on display Wednesday, Oct. 18 to Saturday, Oct. 28 at R.S.V.P., 749 Second St., in Webster City. The display is open to the public from noon to 7 p.m. There is no admission charge.
A very emotional memorial, “Remembering Our Fallen,” is a stark reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by Iowa soldiers killed in The War on Terror while wearing our country’s uniform in a war zone.
This photo memorial, which includes military and personal photos of each of Iowa’s fallen, is traveling throughout the state and will be coming to Webster City.
“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.”
This memorial, and 18 other state memorials representing 60 percent of the nation’s fallen since Sept. 11, 2001, have been created by Patriotic Productions, a non-profit organization headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska.
The goal is to complete a national traveling memorial that will include all of the country’s Fallen from The War on Terror. More information at: RememberingOurFallen.org or PatrioticProductions.org.
