PHOENIX – A traveling tribute to Americans who died while serving their country in the wake of 9/11 is stopping in Mesa this week.

The Remembering Our Fallen memorial will be on display from Thursday until Monday morning near the Alliance Pavilion Stage of the Mesa Arts Center at Center and Main streets.

The exhibit, which debuted at the Lincoln Memorial in 2017, features 33 towers with photos of more than 5,000 fallen U.S. military members.

Remembering Our Fallen honors the memories of service members who died in training accidents or attacks as well as those who suffered from post-traumatic stress after returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and died by suicide.

“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,” Bill Williams, vice president and co-founder of Patriotic Productions, the nonprofit group that produced the memorial, said in a press release.

“We are thankful to the city of Mesa for hosting this beautiful and somber memorial.”
