AR Fallen Hero Traveling Memorial Displayed At Cabot High School, Nov. 17-26

Posted on 11/14/2016

The Arkansas Fallen Hero Traveling Memorial will be on display at Cabot High School from November 17-26. It will be located in the courtyard. 

This memorial remembers all of the Arkansans who have died defending our country since 9/11, including several former Cabot students. Visitors are able to walk among the flags and read the biographies of the heroes that are honored.

The Arkansas Fallen Heroes Traveling Memorial was founded in October 2005, by Gold Star dad, Rob Hopper, of Wynne, Arkansas.  Rob's youngest son, Marine LCPL Brian Chase Hopper, was killed on January 26, 2005.  Brian's unit was flying in Western Iraq to guard the first inaugural election, when the helicopter he was in crashed, killing all 31 men inside.  

After that day, Rob decided that he wanted to do something to remember his son and all of the Arkansans who have died defending our country since 9/11. He purchased a 3' x 5' flag for each Arkansas Fallen Hero and created a traveling memorial flag field.  People are able to walk among the flags and read the biographies of the heroes that are honored.  

In May, 2014, Arkansas Run for the Fallen began displaying this memorial flag field. Arkansas Run for the Fallen is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise awareness for the native Arkansans who fought and died supporting the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT). The purpose is also to provide support, hope and healing to families grieving the death of a loved one in military service regardless of relationship or circumstance of death.

Please note: The memorial will be open November 17 & 18 after school, beginning at 4:00 p.m. During Fall Break, it will be open all day.
