A very emotional exhibit, “Remembering Our Fallen,” is a sad reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by over 80 Nebraskans killed in The War on Terror while wearing our country’s uniform in Afghanistan or Iraq. The photo display will be coming to Minden.
“The warriors of the 21st Century, professionals, who volunteered to join the United States Armed Forces, grew up in the shadow of September 11, 2001, a defining moment for most of them. They come from all walks of life and every corner of our country, daring to go where so many never would. They retain the face of freedom and build upon the legacies of those who went before them in a cause greater than themselves.”
“We can never forget those who sacrificed everything for our freedom. We must remember these American Heroes and speak their names when we see their family members,” said Bill Williams, exhibit co-creator. “This exhibit is created so it can travel easily throughout Nebraska, so that more people will have the opportunity to honor and remember Nebraska’s Fallen.” “Remembering Our Fallen” will be on display from February 12-21 in the lobby at First Bank and Trust Company. Hours the display will be available to the public is Monday through Friday 9:00 to 4:00 and Saturday 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.
The exhibit is open to the public. Remembering Our Fallen was created by Bill & Evonne Williams of Patriotic Productions, Omaha. More information is available at: www.rememberingourfallen.org.
