The war memorial “Remembering Our Fallen” was hosted by the University of Kansas last week.

The traveling tribute, which honors Kansas men and women who have died in the War on Terror since Sept. 11, 2001, was displayed Nov. 2-6 in the Traditions Lounge on the fourth floor of the Kansas Union.

“Remembering Our Fallen” was created in 2010 by Bill and Evonne Williams of Omaha, Nebraska, to honor and remember Nebraska residents who lost their lives in war zones. Since that time, the project has expanded to include 22 additional states, with the goal of eventually completing memorials for each state by 2016.

Learn more about the project and find future dates and locations of the memorial. More photos are available on Flickr.
