Sarpy County is proud to announce that it is hosting Remembering Our Fallen, a photographic war memorial designed to keep fallen service members’ memories alive.
The traveling exhibit honors military members from Nebraska who have died since Sept. 11, 2001. It features both military and personal photos, giving visitors a broader look into the lives of each person.
Omaha residents Bill and Evonne Williams created the project in 2010 with photos of fallen service members from Nebraska. Through their nonprofit organization, Patriotic Productions, they expanded the project by creating state-specific memorials for display in other states. A national display was unveiled in 2017 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
In addition to their work with Remembering Our Fallen, the Williamses have organized 11 honor flights to take Nebraska veterans to visit the war memorials in Washington.
Remembering Our Fallen will be on display at the Sarpy County Courthouse through May 10. It is located on the second floor of the administration wing near the Sarpy County Boardroom. It is free and open to the public.
