CHILLICOTHE – Eyes of Freedom with host to two different exhibits honoring the service and sacrifice of America’s armed forces in Chillicothe next week, they are asking for people to help escort the truck into Chillicothe on Wednesday.
The Eyes of Freedom: Lima Company Memorial will roll into the first capital on Wednesday, May 5, 2021.
The Eyes of Freedom is a traveling memorial honoring “the service and sacrifice of all who answer our Nation’s call; then, now, and tomorrow.” It features life-size portraits and displays depicting the fallen of Lima Company 3/25, one of the hardest-hit units in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
The Spirit of America’s Story, The Wall is also a traveling memorial offering a visual tour of America’s military history from 1775 to the present day.
“We [at the Visitor’s Bureau] were intrigued by the whole idea, “When we found out it was a dedication to those who have served in uniform from the Revolutionary War through Afghanistan, we knew it was something we wanted to offer.” Both exhibits are free and open to the public during the week.
The memorial will be set up at the Chillicothe’s Yoctangee Armory inside the Yoctangee Park for the weekend.
