The National Memorial Ladies dedicates a Fallen Warriors Memorial in Cy-Champ Park. The memorial includes a flag pole, a sketch of Iraq and Afghanistan, and a Battle Cross with commemorative plaques listing the name, rank and branch of service of each fallen soldier. Along with the hoisting of the American flag, a tree is illuminated in shades of red, white and blue to signify when a fallen hero is returning to Houston for burial. The memorial honors those who died while serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation New Dawn from 14 Houston-area counties, including Harris and Montgomery counties.
