Remembering Our Fallen Exhibit

 

REMEMBERING OUR FALLEN

Traveling Photo Memorial of Nebraska’s Fallen on Display 

(September 4th to September 11th)

First Bank and Trust Company is honored to present Remembering Our Fallen. This emotional memorial is a stark reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by Nebraskans killed in The War on Terror (Post 9/11) while wearing our country's uniform in  a war zone. The photo memorial, which includes military and personal photos of each of Nebraska's Fallen is now on display in our lobby. 

“We must remember these American Heroes and speak their names when we see their family members.  We can never forget those who sacrificed everything for our freedom,” said Bill Williams, co-creator of the memorial.  “While this memorial is about those who have died, it was created for the living…to help the families in their grief, while reminding the rest of us of the terrible price paid for our freedom by our current generation of military.” 

This memorial and 14 other state memorials representing 60% of our country’s Fallen since 9/11/01, have been created by Patriotic Productions, a non-profit organization headquartered in Omaha.  A national memorial with our nation’s Fallen from all states was unveiled July, 2017, and has since been traveling the nation.  More information at: PatrioticProductions.org.

“Remembering Our Fallen” will be on display September 4th to September 11th during our regular business hours of 9 am - 4 pm Monday-Friday.
