9/11 Memorial at Flag Plaza at Yonders Point presented by The Texas Fallen Project, Inc.
September 8 @ 6:00 pm – September 15 @ 8:00 am
On September 8th, the Friday before 9/11, The Texas Fallen Project, Inc. will begin placing 4,000 12″ x 18″ American Flags out at Flag Plaza at Yonders Point in Old Settlers Park to honor those who have gone on before us. There will be 2977 flags, one for each of the American lives that were lost on 9/11. The remaining 1023 flags will represent Texans we have lost since 9/11. Yonders Point is located at 3103 Aten Loop.
Starting Friday evening September 8th through the week of 9/11, the entire community is invited to come out to view and reflect on all the lives this country has given in the name of Freedom. Residents are invited to come out, take pictures and educate children on the cost of our freedoms.
On Monday, September 11, The Texas Fallen Project, Inc. will serve hotdogs and water while supplies last. The memorial will be in place September 8th (evening) thru September 14th. For more information, go to: https://www.facebook.com/texas.fallen.project.inc/.
More about The Texas Fallen Project Inc.:
Texas Fallen Project, Inc. began seven years ago under another nonprofit. A memorial wall that measured 200 linear feet in length, made its journey to over 80 locations across Texas in five short years. The wall was proudly displayed in Texas towns such as Perryton, Mission, Pecos, Wolfe City, and was welcomed across the great State of Texas! This photographic memorial wall honors over 600 Texans who have fallen in combat since September 11th, 2001. A date, like Pearl Harbor, will live in infamy in American hearts.
Texas Fallen Project, Inc. will continue to “Honor and Remember” the Fallen, along with those who continue to serve and sacrifice. With the help of kind and generous friends, donors, supporters and companies, we will continue to make this dream live on, to share this Journey to Remember. Through this commitment, it is our hope that Gold Star families will find comfort and healing.
Let us, together, raise our voices to let their families know we are grateful for the hero they raised, and that they will not be forgotten!
