Posted by John on 2012/10/4 13:30:00 (306 reads) News by the same author

In keeping with the theme of honoring our military veterans at this year’s Missouri Day Festival, a display will honor the fallen heroes from Missouri. “Remembering Our Fallen” will be located in the Trenton High School Commons from Wednesday evening, October 17th through Sunday, October 21st.

The display, some 60 linear feet long and standing over 8 feet tall, is a pictorial
display honoring those who sacrificed their lives since September 11th, 2001.

Among those included in the display is Ronald Wayne Sawyer of Laredo who lost his life in 2009 fighting the war in Afghanistan. The display was created to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Organizers say its legacy will be that these men
and women are never forgotten and their names will be remembered and spoken. Over 140 Missourians are included in the state’s display. It includes photographs of fallen soldiers, quotations and memorabilia in their honor.

The display will be available for public viewing during school hours Thursday and Friday, October 18th and 19th. It’s also open for viewing during
Wednesday-Thursday-Friday evenings from 5:30 until 8 o’clock. The THS commons will be used by high school marching bands Saturday, October 20th so promoters say the public should avoid attempting to see the display on that date.

Hours for additional viewing will be Sunday, October 21st from 2 to 4 pm. There is no charge to visit the display. Visitors are asked to park on the west side of Trenton High School--entering the commons from the west side.
