Idaho Fallen Soldiers Memorial

   We are raising funds for the Idaho Fallen Soldiers Memorial which will be built in Jerome, Idaho.  This Memorial will honor all Idaho Soldiers who have died in the service of their country since Sept. 11 2001.  The bronze statue of Staff Sgt. Dan Brown, which is the centerpiece of the plaza, is already being produced but we need funds for the wall of names, benches and other hardscape that will complete the Memorial.  It will be built at the Gayle Forsythe Park in Jerome, Idaho.  It is the same park when Sgt. Brown played as a child and where families and children gather every day.

   We are the family of Sgt. Brown and we appreciate all donations, large and small.   We believe this Veterans Memorial will inspire pride and patriotism and touch the hearts of all who see it for generations to come. It will remind people of the honor, service and sacrifice of our American Soldiers. 

   Renowned portrait artist, Lena Toritch, has sculpted the statue of Sgt. Dan Brown.   It depicts Sgt. Brown reaching down to an Afghan child.   It is an incredible likeness and a powerful image. 

   Sgt. Brown of the U.S. Army 4th Infantry Division was killed in Afghanistan March 24, 2012 while trying to protect others from an IED which exploded.   Sgt. Brown was just two weeks away from going home to Idaho.   He never got to hold his twin baby daughters who are now 3 years old.   His daughters may never know his touch but they will know about him and what he and other Idaho Soldiers have sacrificed for the freedom we cherish today.
