“Remembering Our Fallen” comes to AZCM

Memorial exhibit honoring Arizona service members who have perished since 9-11

PHOENIX – Personal photos, a memento or two, all that is left for the families of those service members who have given their lives since 9-11. For them remembering is a way of life. For us, we should never forget.

“Remembering Our Fallen” is a memorial exhibit with personal photos; how the families wanted their loved one remembered. The memorial at the Arizona Capitol Museum January 13 through February 6 depicts those service members who called Arizona home and died from wounds suffered in the war zone while wearing our country’s uniform. 

“Honoring those who have worn our country’s uniform and died in its service is an important part of who we are as Americans,” said Secretary of State Michele Reagan, whose office oversees the AZCM.

More information on the "Remembering Our Fallen" exhibit is available online at www.rememberingourfallen.org.

The AZCM is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission and parking are free. For more information about AZCM exhibits, or to schedule a tour, go online to www.azlibrary.gov/azcm or call 602-926-3620.
