The Global War on Terror Wall of Remembrance comes to Dickinson



Dickinson, North Dakota – Till June 26, the Global War on Terror Wall of Remembrance will be present in Dickinson.

At the Stark County Veterans Memorial Park, visitors can visit the Wall.

The wall honors the heroic men and women who gave their lives in defense of our nation as well as the almost 10,000 names that are inscribed on it in memory of the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“You can see this big American Flag waving above us. What you see on the wall behind me and under the flag is the true cost of what it takes to keep that flag moving. The flag does not move for the wind. It moves with the final breath of those that are on the wall,” said Bryan Romans, CEO and founder of Romans Warrior Foundation.

The Romans Warrior Foundation planned the event, which is supported by the District 8 American Legion Riders.

According to the event’s organizers, hearing about the lives lost is one thing, but seeing the actual names inscribed into the wall is overwhelming.

“On the back side of the Wall is the education portion of it. And it just refreshes everybody’s memory of the sequence of events that led up to 9/11 and after,” said Tom Coons, the director of District 8 American Legion Riders.

Although there is no charge to enter, donations are encouraged to help the wall continue its journey across America.
