Any chance to honor our soldiers is one we should take. To thank them for their service and sacrifice is the least we can do. The national memorial exhibit "Remembering Our Fallen" is stopping in Iowa for ten days and it will be a very emotional tribute.

From May 2-12, make plans to visit the exhibit as it comes to the Isle Casino in Bettendorf. You'll experience the viewing of 31 Tribute Towers, with military and personal photos of 5,000 of our nation's brave who have fallen in Iraq, Afghanistan and other wars since 9/11. It's an exhibit that first debuted September 7, 2017 in Washington, D.C.

Some of the Tribute Towers include memorials of men and women who died from training accidents or attacks, others will commemorate those who have been victims of PTSD and suicide.

"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, Vice President and co-founder of Patriotic Productions, the non-profit responsible for this memorial.

A veterans' reunion will take place May 2-5 at the Isle Casino, at which hundreds of veterans will be in attendance. During this reunion there will also be a Vietnam Veterans' Memorial. This is an exceptional opportunity to say Thank You to those who so richly deserve it.

Families of the soldiers we have lost since 9/11 are asked to visit this website with information and photos about their loved ones.

These exhibits will be open May 2-12 from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day.
