Open to the public.
"Remembering Our Fallen" memorials for Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska will be at the GRAND REUNION 2016 event. This event will be a celebration of our veterans (over 2,600) who have been a part of the Honor Flights and Vietnam Veterans' Flights from Nebraska to Washington D.C. since 2008.
It will also include the formal announcement, plans and design of the national (traveling) photo memorial for "Remembering Our Fallen."
The Iowa Memorial of "Remembering Our Fallen" will be at the Carver Hawkeye Arena for a 2pm ceremony for the Gold Star children of Iowa's Fallen from The War on Terror.
The University of Iowa has made it possible for Iowa's Gold Star family members to attend the evening football game. Earlier in the day, family members will write a note to their Fallen loved one, attach it to a gold balloon, and release them - heaven bound.
A special thank you to the University of Iowa and Casey's for making this event possible.
