Wall of Fallen Heroes in Clear Spring Sunday

November 09, 2011

On Sunday, the Wall of Fallen Heroes will be at the Clear Spring Veterans Memorial at Clear Spring Park from 6 to 7 p.m. for a memorial service to honor the men and women who gave their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The names on the wall are fallen heroes from the mid-Atlantic states.

The wall was put together by Tim Wright of Shippensburg, Pa. On it are the names of 6,285 American soldiers. Wright has prepared a wall in which names are applied in gold leaf; the names are made by Art Signs of Chambersburg, Pa.

Sunday’s event is sponsored by various Clear Spring churches.

The invocation will be given by the Rev. John Toms; a speech will be given by the Rev. David Sword, organizer of the Clear Spring Veterans Memorial; a patriot address will be given by Wright; and the closing remarks will be made by the Rev. Robert Stone of Blair’s Valley First Church of God.

The community is invited.
