National Memorial Unveiled in Lincoln, Nebraska July 22, 2017
Saturday, July 22, 2017 in Lincoln, NE
The National Unveiling in Washington, D.C. will be held September 7, 2017
The first phase of an all-encompassing national memorial, a first-of-its-kind, was unveiled in Lincoln, Nebraska on July 22, 2017. The national unveiling will include a ceremony September 7, 2017 at 10am at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial. Gold Star families are especially welcome and will be recognized. We encourage Americans to attend to show their support of our nation's Gold Star families. 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 memorial consists of Tribute Towers supporting double-sided and full-color banners to withstand the elements, making it possible to be displayed outdoors, as well as indoors. Each Tribute Tower is 10 feet high and 5 feet wide, and includes military and personal photos of our country's Fallen.
We Need Your Help to Complete the National Memorial
-Help us contact Gold Star Families - Please share this web site and ask them to add their Fallen Hero's information and photos. There is no cost to the families. If a family has already provided photos for their loved one for a state memorial, there is no need to re-submit for the national memorial.
-Make a Donation to support the production of the national memorial. If you are interested in a sponsorship, please call 402.612.0210 or email info@RememberingOurFallen.org and we will be happy to discuss opportunities with you.
-Reserve the National Memorial - It will begin traveling in August 2017 and reservations for the remainder of 2017 and into 2018 and beyond are now being accepted. We hope to have the national memorial 80-90% completed to begin traveling in the Summer of 2017. If you are interested in reserving the memorial for a mid-2017 event or later, please contact us.
