(Sidney, NE) A very emotional exhibit, “Remembering Our Fallen,” is a sad reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by over 80 Nebraskans killed in The War on Terror while wearing our country’s uniform in Afghanistan or Iraq. The photo exhibit is on display at the Cabela’s Retail Store on the Mezzanine August 11-August 20 during regular store hours.

“The warriors of the 21st Century, professionals, who volunteered to join the United States Armed Forces, grew up in the shadow of September 11, 2001, a defining moment for most of them. They come from all walks of life and every corner of our country, daring to go where so many never would. They retain the face of freedom and build upon the legacies of those who went before them in a cause greater than themselves.”

“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,” said Dr. Mary Hawkins, President, Bellevue University. “This exhibit is created so it can travel easily throughout Nebraska, so that more people will have the opportunity to honor and remember Nebraska’s Fallen.”

“Remembering Our Fallen” will be on display August 11 through August 20 at Cabela’s Retail Store on the Mezzanine during regular store hours.

The exhibit is open to the public. Remembering Our Fallen was created by Bill & Evonne Williams of Patriotic Productions, Omaha, and is financially sponsored by Bellevue University, Bellevue.

Bellevue University is a private, non-profit University in Bellevue, Nebraska. Founded in 1966, with the charter of serving our military heroes, it has been a military-friendly school for 45 years. Bellevue University was an early adopter of distance learning and is now a leader in online education with students in the 50 US states and 55 foreign countries, including Afghanistan and Iraq.
