Arkansas Fallen Heroes Memorial coming to Searcy

By: 5 December 2010 One Comment

The Arkansas Fallen Heroes Memorial will be in Searcy Dec. 11 – 18 at the VFW on Davis Drive. This breathtaking, heart-wrenching field of flags will be on display to honor the 114 Arkansas soldiers that have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms and rights.
