Remembering Our Fallen Exhibit

The Friends of Homestead National Monument are proud to sponsor the photographic exhibit Remembering Our Fallen. This exhibition, featuring photographs of Nebraska and western Iowa armed forces members killed during service in Iraq and Afghanistan can be experienced at the Monument's Education Center from February 19 through February 27, 2011.

The Remembering Our Fallen photo exhibit, assembled by Bill and Evonne Williams, keeps the memory of our fallen heroes in the American peoples' thoughts. The photo panels show the portraits of these servicemen and servicewomen, mostly in uniform, listed from the first killed in action to the most recent. Smaller, more personal photos were provided by the families and added later.
