Our Fallen Heroes

Today we remember our Fallen 13 Heroes killed by the suicide bomber on 26-AG 2021 at Kabul Airport.  On our grounds, we have a memorial commissioned by two patriots from Fredericktown Missouri.  Linda and Kevin Hundhausen, formerly of St. Charles County, wanted to build a lasting tribute for the 11 Marines, 1 Army Soldier, and 1 Navy Corpsman who lost their lives during the humanitarian mission.  They wanted them to be remembered.

They are forever in our hearts.  We will never forget.
