Savannah Mall Unveils 50-Foot Traveling Exhibit Commemorating Fallen Soldiers

“Remembering Our Fallen” honors Georgians and South Carolinians who have died in war zones since 9/11

(SAVANNAH, GA) Savannah Mall unveiled “Remembering Our Fallen,” a 50-foot exhibit commemorating fallen soldiers. A motorcycle brigade brought in the exhibit to be displayed on the upper level of the mall, next to Payless Shoes.

The traveling exhibit, which pays tribute to U.S. troops from Georgia and South Carolina who have died as a result of wounds suffered in war zones since 9/11, will be on display now through January 3, 2016 and open to the public.

“We are deeply honored to present ‘Remembering Our Fallen’ to our community again this year,” said Savannah Mall General Manager Phil McConnell. “During this time of year when families and friends come together to celebrate the holidays, the Savannah Mall would like to take a moment to pause and honor the brave men and women who have given their lives protecting our country. We hope the community will visit the exhibit and take part in this very special and moving tribute.”

“Remembering Our Fallen” was the brainchild of Bill and Evonne Williams, residents of Omaha, Neb., whose four sons have served in the U.S. military. Through their organization Patriotic Productions and with educational sponsorship from Bellevue University, the Williams have created these one-of-a-kind exhibits for states including Georgia, South Carolina, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Colorado, Arizona, North Dakota, Kansas, Wisconsin, Oklahoma and Texas.

Each exhibit includes formal military photos, along with favorite personal photos of the fallen soldiers, which have been provided by family members. The exhibits are individually crafted for a particular state and travel from venue to venue.
