A very emotional exhibit, Remembering Our Fallen, will soon be displayed at New Bedford Regional Airport, Hangar 1447 Airport Road, NB, 02746, to remind Americans of the ultimate sacrifice made by those who died from wounds suffered in Iraq and Afghanistan while wearing our country’s uniform.
Remembering Our Fallen is a traveling photographic memorial that honors our country’s Fallen from the War on Terror (9/11/2001–8/30/2021). The memorial includes both military and personal photos.
The memorial will be on display and open to the public on Sun., 12/ 10 from Noon to 6 p.m.; Mon., 12/11, from 9–6 p.m., with a special ceremony honoring Fairhaven native Matthew R. Rodiguez, who was killed in action on 12/11/13; Tues., 12/12 from 9 a.m. to noon.
The special ceremony for LCPL Rodriguez will be held on his anniversary date, Mon., 12/11, at 3 p.m.
The memorial includes 34 Tribute Towers with military and personal photos of almost 5,391 of our nation’s military Fallen from 9/11/2001 to 8/30/2021. This memorial was unveiled nationally at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. in late 2017.
Organizers are still asking for help in contacting Gold Star families to include every single American who has died between 9-11-2001-8/30/2021 in The War on Terror. There is no cost to families. They may visit the web site: www.RememberingOurFallen.org and provide basic information and two photos for their Fallen loved one.
This national memorial also includes Tribute Towers that recognize our servicemen and women who died from training accidents or attacks while stationed stateside or on overseas bases. Those who return from war with the invisible wounds of Post-Traumatic Stress and succumb to suicide are also included to recognize the tragedy of PTS.
