Photo Exhibit of Iowa’s Fallen will be on display at Sibley Public Library June 2 through 7, 2014

A very emotional exhibit, “Remembering Our Fallen,” is a sad reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by over 80 Iowans killed in The War on Terror while wearing our country’s uniform in Afghanistan or Iraq.

The warriors of the 21st Century, professionals, who volunteered to join the United States Armed Forces, grew up in the shadow of September 11, 2001, a defining moment for most of them.  They come from all walks of life and every corner of our country, daring to go where so many never would.  They retain the face of freedom and build upon the legacies of those who went before them in a cause greater than themselves.”  

“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 Colonel James R. Biernesser, USAF (Ret.), Director of Military Affairs for Bellevue University.  “This exhibit is created so it can travel easily throughout Iowa, so that more people will have the opportunity to honor and remember Iowa’s Fallen.” 

The exhibit, created by Bill & Evonne Williams of Patriotic Productions in Omaha, is financially sponsored by Bellevue University, Bellevue, Nebr.

This special exhibit’s appearance at the Sibley Public Library was made possible through the generous support from: Melvin Savings Bank, Bruce & Kathleen Osterman, Sibley State Bank, Gary Snow, State Farm – Dick Mataloni and Donna Sterler.
