Honor Our Heroes
It is time to honor the courage, service, and sacrifice of all those who served in the Iraq/Afghanistan war.
Since 2001, more than 2 ½ million service members have served in post-9/11 war operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Over half of them have deployed more than once. Many of those veterans are from Long Island. More than 7,000 service members lost their lives and made the ultimate sacrifice.
Not only will the memorial honor those who have served, but it will also remember the 30,000 post 9/11 veterans who have died by suicide.
