Honoring Their Sacrifice: U.S. Memorials to and for Our Troops
Throughout the history of the United States, service members from each and every branch have sacrificed everything in order to keep their home safe, and free. To commemorate these brave souls — to ensure that the generations to come will never forget — several gorgeous monuments have been erected, many of which can be found below.

We all remember where we were when we first heard about the September 11th attacks on America. We recall our reactions, seeing the destruction on television, wondering how anyone could so brutally hurt so many people.
Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives that day, from employees who worked in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, to innocent bystanders on the street, to brave policemen and women, firefighters, and paramedics who sacrificed everything to save those left in the rubble.
Many of these people are being forgotten, and it’s up to us to change that.
