The Remembering Our Fallen exhibit was created to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars in hopes that these men and women will never be forgotten and that their names will be remembered and spoken.

The exhibit is in North Bend and will be on display Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the VFW Hall in downtown North Bend. It arrived Monday escorted from Fremont by Legion Riders.

The exhibit was organized by Bill and Evonne Williams of Omaha, the couple who organized the Honor Flights that took World War II and Korean War veterans back to Washington, D.C., to see the monuments made in their honor.

The Williamses have done this through their business, Patriotic Productions. It’s mission statement reads: “Patriotic Productions is dedicated to honoring our military, including those who have died, while serving the United States of America.”

Remembering Our Fallen is a tribute to all of those who have died as a result of wounds suffered in a war zone, while in uniform, since September 11, 2001.
In March 2011 Bellevue University became the educational sponsor for the

“Remembering Our Fallen” tour. Bellevue University is located just minutes away from Offutt Air Force Base with nearly 20 percent of its students active duty or military veterans.

The exhibit has been so well received that the Williamses have organized exhibits for Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, with more in the works.

The Remembering Our Fallen exhibit is free and open to the public Friday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 9 p.m.
American Legion Post Post 340, AmVets Post 20, VFW Post 8223 and St. George Catholic Church of Morse Bluff are sponsoring the display.
