National Memorial to be Unveiled in Washington, D.C. September, 2017
An all-encompassing national memorial, a first-of-its-kind, is being produced with a planned completion date of Summer, 2017. This memorial will include our country's military Fallen who have died in The War on Terror since 9/11/2001. Additional towers will be designated to include private contractors killed in the war zone, and our military who have died from attacks at home, training accidents, or while working and on active duty, whether stateside or overseas.
To recognize the terrible effects brought on by serving in a war zone, our service men and women who served in a combat zone and later succumbed to Post-Traumatic Stress/suicide after their return, will also be included.
This beautiful display will consist of 40-45 Tribute Towers supporting double-sided and full-color banners to withstand the elements, making it possible to be exhibited outdoors, as well as indoors. Each Tribute Tower is 8 feet high and 5 feet wide and will include military and personal photos of each Fallen.
The Memorial will begin its tour August 1st in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota with a national unveiling on September 7th, at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. This ceremony will be open to the public and Gold Star families are especially welcome and will be recognized.
