Cost of Freedom/American Veterans Traveling Tribute
September 8, 2022 - September 11, 2022
Join us to pay tribute to our veterans when the American Veterans Traveling Tribute visits Milky Way Park in Harvard, IL, Sept. 8-11. We are a proud sponsor of this memorial hosted by the Harvard Chamber of Commerce.
The mission of the AVTT project is to honor, respect, and remember the men and women who served, and to pay specific tribute to those who gave all in that service. Since the tribute is mobile, it lets people honor and commemorate veterans and active military personnel without having to travel far to do so.
The exhibition in Harvard will include a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. The wall measures nearly 400 feet long and lists all the American casualties from the Vietnam War. In addition, the exhibition consists of the Cost of Freedom Tribute – smaller tribute panels honoring American sacrifices in conflicts through the 20th and 21st centuries, including World War I, World War II, 9-11, Afghanistan, and Iraq.
