“Remembering the Fallen of Texas” is a traveling photographic war memorial that honors our country’s military Fallen from The War On Terror 09/11/2001 to the present. Unlike brick and mortar memorials, “Remembering our Fallen” includes military and personal photos. Its legacy will be that these men and women will be remembered and their names will be spoken, while helping to lessen the grief of their families.
