Here is a video we did not produce about the Wall of Remembrance but it represents what we experience at every tour stop.
Sometimes it's better said by those who visit us and leave in a better place.
Thank you Honor Flight of Wisconsin and "Operation at Ease 2016"
The Global War on Terror (GWOT) Wall of Remembrance traveling memorial was built to honor and remember those lost in America's longest war and in subsequent terrorist attacks on Americans in which loss of life occurred.
The memorial is seven and a half feet tall and over one hundred twenty feet in length. One side of the memorial has a full color historically accurate timeline told with few words and mostly images that are family appropriate. The timeline tells the story from the bombing of the barracks in Beirut, Lebanon in 1983 to the most recent attacks like Orlando, Florida and San Bernardino, California. The other side of the memorial bears the names of about eleven thousand American fallen Heroes and Victims from the global war on terrorism. It is a perpetual memorial because there is no set end to these wars, so names are added yearly to the respective panels. The pictures are of the second version of the Wall of Remembrance that has towers at each end to represent the stylings of the World Trade Towers that were destroyed in the attacks of 9/11/2001.
