The Fallen Heroes Memorial

K.I.A. Memorial Roadmarch in cooperation with VAU, Renegades of WNY and the City of Niagara Falls are excited to announce that August 15 & 16, 2020 we will be bringing the Fallen Heroes Memorial to the KMR10K on August 15th and Hyde Park, 3200 Pine Avenue, Niagara Falls, NY on August 16th.

This 28 foot wide by 6 foot tall American flag symbolizes the shape of the flag when draped on a fallen service members casket. It is formed of 5,433 Military Members killed in action since September 11, 2001. There are 50 gold stars honoring all gold star families nationwide. Displayed in front of the flag is a battle field cross sculpted from mahogany wood by female veteran artist Alicia Dietz.

Tags are in alphabetical order ranging from 11SEPT 2001 to 31Dec 2019; thereafter the tags are in chronological order of the date Killed in Action (KIA).  Sadly, as the war continues we will continue to fill in the blank tags at the end of the flag.”
