.....are the names; memorial photos; hometowns; branch and dates of service of all Illinois military men and women who have died while or the result of supporting Operation Enduring Freedom; Operation Iraqi Freedom; and Operation New Dawn.
Join us in remembering our Illinois Fallen Heroes who have given their lives so that we can all enjoy our freedom that we have today.
Come visit The Wall at a showing near you in remembrance of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
The wall is...
"Death Leaves A Heartache
No One Can Heal
Love Leaves A Memory
No One Can Steal"
rEMEMBER THEIR SACRIFICE
HONOR THEIR SERVICE
TO ENSURE THAT OUR ILLINOIS FALLEN HEROES ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.
A memorial outreach project initiated by and completed by Gold Star Families (families of the fallen) and members of the Illinois Patriot Guard Riders. It is the product of an idea expressed by the father of one of Illinois' fallen military heroes after visiting a stationery memorial at the Illinois Gathering of the Guard 2010. Simply put, he said "This wall must be seen by as many people as possible."
