2014 Special Thanks to:
Major Rick Wood and the men and women of the US Air National Guard, 181st Intelligence Wing. They cleaned and pressed each and every flag in preparation for the placement...a truly phenomenal service in order for each flag to be an untattered representation of the life it signifies. The unit also provided onsite support with vehicles and flood lights.
Rick Burger, District Manager of Duke Energy donated more than 1000 American flags.
Our county commissioners, Mike Ciolli, Brad Anderson and Judy Anderson for their support.
Frank Baker, owner of Cahill's Rental donated the use of a flood light for the flag placement.
Tim Fouse, owner of Large Ink donated the banners and signs that list the names of our fallen heroes.
Bussing Louderback VFW Post 1127 in Brazil for their generous monetary donation.
Nearly 7000 American men and women in uniform have given their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan since operations began in that region in 2001. In the Wabash Valley we choose to remember them each year by placing a flag for each fallen hero. The names of every hero is also listed on large banners at the park. The flags are placed for one week in November on both sides, of the Veteran Memorial Trail at the ISU Memorial Stadium at Brown and Wabash Ave. in Terre Haute, Indiana. The community is encouraged to come walk or run to remember these valiant souls and to log their miles here on this website. Our goal: One mile for each fallen hero.
