For the last eight months a memorial honoring soldiers killed in the line of duty since 9/11, has been traveling around the state of North Dakota.
For the next two weeks that memorial will be on display at the State Capitol in Bismarck.
<<"Throughout several community's, banks, sports, medical facilities, we've just been coordinating with companies and they've been very excited to have it in their facilities," David Johnson said.
Since April, this patriotic memorial has made it's stop in several communities across North Dakota, with pictures of 21 soldiers who've died fighting for our freedom since September 11, 2001.
"Just to recognize again that Freedom is not Free, the men and women serving our country are putting themselves into harms way, they're willing to sacrifice their life for the freedom of others and we need the public to appreciate and understand that," Dave Rice said.
Memorials like this are on display across the country, to honor fallen soldiers in EACH state.
"It's our responsibility and our honor to display this throughout different locations throughout the state of North Dakota," Rice said.
The memorial has been on the road since April 28th in North Dakota, and stays at each community for about two weeks.
Just in time for the start of the Legislative Session, it's now on display at the State Capitol.
"I think it's very appropriate to be here in the state capitol as our state legislators convene, there are a number of bills that would benefit our veterans and their families, our fallen's families, those currently serving troops and the legislators, it's a good idea to remind them of that," Rice said.
"Instead of just an engraving of a name on a granite wall, this shows the pictures of our soldiers and our families and our neighbors, it shows them as soldiers, as citizens and family men," Johnson said.
