The Arlington Memorial Gardens will host the “Remembering Our Fallen” exhibit May 25th-28th. This emotional traveling exhibit honors the close to 7,000 military sons and daughters whose lives were lost since 9/11 in the War On Terror. The display, the first-of-its-kind, honors our fallen military members who have given the fullest measure of devotion while serving our country in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
The display consists of over 30 Tribute Towers supporting double-sided and full-color banners to withstand the elements, making it possible to be exhibited both outdoors and indoors. Each Tribute Tower is 10 feet high and 5 feet wide and includes both military and personal photos of our country's fallen heroes. Click here to learn more.
