I'm proud to say I was there for the dedication of this Memorial to the fallen Sailors, Marines and Soldiers of that campaign. This memorial has the names of the fallen from Arizona. This monument is dedicated to all services including Coast Guard and National Guard troops.
There is one panel on the memorial free of names. One knows that this panel will not remain free of names of those who have fallen for our country.
It was a good experience to attend with the Patriot Guard Riders who were requested to be there by the Gold Star Family Members that attended the dedication.
This Mission Complete Pin of the Patriot Guard Riders was put into the time capsule of the memorial. All the members of the Guard Riders touched this before it was handed over.
