The Global War on Terrorism Wall of Remembrance

The Global War on Terrorism Wall of Remembrance has traveled over 10,000 miles to make its way to Sonoma County. This traveling memorial will call Santa Rosa Memorial Park home Friday May 23 through May 26. It will be free and open to the public around the clock during its stay at 1900 Franklin Avenue, Santa Rosa.

The two-sided wall measures six feet tall and 94 feet long. On one side are the names of the victims of 9/11 terror attacks and names of those who have died in uniform fighting against terror. On the other side of the wall is the Global War on Terror in a timeline which started in 1983.

The Wall of Remembrance is a Victory2Vistion project and was inspired by a wish by active duty military for a memorial, the cowardly acts of terrorists pm 9/11/2001 and Vietnam Veterans. It was designed built and funded by United States Marine David Brown and Vision2Victory Founder Richard (JR) Nichols in 2011 to commemorate the 10 year remembrance of 9/11.
