 Global War on Terrorism Memorial Rededication

Global War on Terrorism Memorial Rededication

You are invited to the rededication of the Global War on Terrorism Memorial Saturday, September 7.

Since the Global War on Terrorism began on September 11, 2001, close to 7000 Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines have given their lives in defense of our nation. To honor their sacrifice, the new Global War on Terrorism Memorial was dedicated at the National Infantry Museum October 16, 2017. The memorial includes granite panels engraved with the names of all service members who have given their lives in the conflict, narrative panels explaining the conflict, and murals with artwork from each service. It also includes a 13’ steel beam from World Trade Center Tower 1 that was presented to Fort Benning by NYC Firefighters, and nine bronze statues representing an Infantry squad .

The 2019 rededication will take place on September 7, 2019, at 9am and will include the names of service members who’ve recently given their lives in the fight.
