The public is invited to view the Iraq/Afghan War Memorial on Monday, May 25, 2015 at the historic Daytona Beach Bandshell between 12:00 noon and 5:00 p.m.
Also on display will be a memorial to the 34 U.S. Sailors and Marines killed in the June 8, 1967 Attack on the USS Liberty.
There will be 2 wooden podiums with notebooks listing the names, age, rank, service branch, hometown and date of death of the 6,800+ U.S. troops killed in action while serving in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars since 2001. The podiums with notebooks will be standing alone for passersby to approach and look through and to remember the fallen.
Each podium will have an additional memorial listing of the 34 U.S. Sailors and Marines killed in the June 8, 1967 attack on the USS Liberty.
A guest book will also be available for members of the public to leave personal comments, messages and/or remembrances.
Members of the Central Florida chapter of Veterans For Peace will be on hand to answer questions, provide assistance and/or engage in friendly conversation.
We ask that there be no protesting, no signs, no speeches, no bullhorning at the Memorial.
