National Memorial to be Unveiled
Saturday, July 22, 2017 in Lincoln, NE
and Washington, D.C. September 7, 2017
An all-encompassing national memorial, a first-of-its-kind, is being produced with an unveiling of the initial phase in late July. 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 our military who, while on active duty stateside or overseas, died from attacks, training accidents, or a job-related injury causing death.
To recognize the terrible effects brought on by serving in a war zone, a tower will be dedicated to our service men and women who served in a combat zone and later succumbed to Post-Traumatic Stress/suicide.
This beautiful display will consist of 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 10 feet high and 5 feet wide and will include military and personal photos of our country's Fallen.
The Memorial will be unveiled in Lincoln, Nebraska on Saturday, July 22nd, with a ceremony at 10am at the Pinnacle Bank Arena. It will then 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. Both unveiling ceremonies are open to the public and Gold Star families are especially welcome and will be recognized.
