Saint Francis to host ‘Remembering Our Fallen’ photo exhibit

Grand Island, Neb. — A very emotional exhibit, “Remembering Our Fallen,” is a sad reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by 81 Nebraskans killed in The War on Terror while wearing our country’s uniform in Afghanistan or Iraq.

The photo display will be coming to Saint Francis Medical Center Nov. 5-9.

“We can never forget those who sacrificed everything for our freedom. We must remember these American Heroes and speak their names when we see their family members,” said Bill Williams, exhibit co-creator.  “This exhibit is created so it can travel easily throughout Nebraska, so that more people will have the opportunity to honor and remember Nebraska’s Fallen.”

The exhibit is open to the public. “Remembering Our Fallen” was created by Bill and Evonne Williams of Patriotic Productions in Omaha. If you would like to host the display, please contact Bill Williams of Patriotic Productions at bwilliams@rememberingourfallen.org or (402) 612-0210.
