The Honoring Our Fallen Memorial Wall is located at Rosie the Riveter park in Long Beach California and was unveiled on Memorial Day.
We are reaching out to our community to assist us in the funds to complete this wall. Total initial cost was close to $50,000. The wall is not complete and we have an addtional 40K in work to be done.
Items we will complete at a future date once funds are raised for: memorial plaques, additional memorial plates honoring those we have lost to suicide, landscaping, led light bar, cement below wall with landscaping, and monies needed to maintain the wall and be able to unfortunately add names as needed.
Honoring Our Fallen, a local non-profit organization that supports the families of our soldiers killed in action is sponsoring a wall that will list the names of armed forces members who gave their lives in the service since 9/11. Inscribed in order of death will be the names of all 6,863 as confirmed by US Central Command.
This will be a place where families and friends can come to visit, do a name rubbing, place a flower and see their loved ones sacrifice is not forgotten. For some families in California, this wall will be the closest place they can come as their hero is buried out of state or a distance to far to travel on a moment's decision.
Please consider a donation and please plan to come out this Memorial Day to see the unveiling of this special wall.
