Display remembers the lives lost

An emotional exhibit, “Remembering Our Fallen,” is a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by almost 600 Texans killed in The War on Terror while wearing our country’s uniform in Afghanistan or Iraq.

The display will be in Granbury in conjunction with Field of Flags activities planned by the U.S. Veterans Museum. The exhibit runs now through May 26 at Granbury Church of Christ, 1905 W. Pearl St.

“The warriors of the 21st Century, professionals who volunteered to join the United States Armed Forces, grew up in the shadow of Sept. 11, 2001, a defining moment for most of them,” said Dr. Mary Hawkins, president of Bellevue University, sponsor of the exhibit.

“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.”

The exhibit, created by Bill and Evonne Williams of Patriotic Productions in Omaha, is financially sponsored by Bellevue University, Bellevue, Neb.

The display is on loan to Defenders of Freedom in Dallas for exhibits throughout Texas.
