Military Heroes Honored

Posted: Updated:

It was a bittersweet day for families who have lost loved ones fighting in the war on terror.

The "Remembering Our Fallen" tour was in Minot today to honor members of the US armed forces who never returned home.

Many tears were shed as mothers, fathers, children, and grandparents of those who died fighting for our country were remembered today.

The Remembering our Fallen tour travels the US to pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

The guest of honor in Minot today was Sergeant Clinton Romesha, who was awarded the medal of honor in February of this year.

North Dakota National Guard Captain Steven Bohl also spoke, and says he was touched by the reactions from the families who attended.

(Steven Bohl, Army National Guard Captain) "I'm very humbled and very honored that I could be a part of this today. To see the families of the fallen, the three gold star families that were here, it's amazing to be able to provide them some closure, for them that have made the ultimate sacrifice."

The Remembering Our Fallen display will be in the Sears Court at the Dakota Square Mall for the next nine days.
