"Remembering Our Fallen": Traveling Exhibit Honors North Dakota's 21 Heroes

Posted: Updated:

 

For many, this week is a stark reminder freedom isn't free.  Some right here in North Dakota paid the ultimate sacrifice.

"These warriors represent the best of America, and each has a story to tell," says Major General David Sprynczynatyk, Adjutant General, North Dakota National Guard.

They came from across the State to serve.  Now, a memorial is traveling across the State to honor their service.  "Remembering Our Fallen" remembers the 21 North Dakotans killed in the War on Terror.  "In North Dakota, these are our friends.  These are our neighbors.  These are our children.  They're all our children," says U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp (ND-D).

  It is said, "man does not die until he is forgotten."  Forgetting is something those involved vow not to happen to North Dakota's 21 fallen.  "To honor that pledge that we make to the fallen and to their families who have sacrificed so much that we will never forget," says Heitkamp.  Sprynczynatyk echoes the sentiment:  "We will never forget."

The North Dakota Department of the American Legion is moving the display around the State.  To learn more about tour details, go to rememberingourfallen.org.  The Fallen Heroes Exhibit will be on display at Scheels in Bismarck for the next two weeks.
