MEMORIAL FOREST LOCATIONS
Nebraska Memorial Forest
Each fallen Nebraska military and first responder hero has a story. Each fallen hero’s family member has a story. A tree named for each Nebraska fallen hero will provide lasting comfort and support to each family.
The Nebraska Memorial Forest will be a living tribute for all to visit. A sanctuary to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice the fallen made for our freedom and safety. An open place in nature where we can say with a grateful heart of the fallen hero, “I sincerely Honor and Remember you and I’m humbled to say your name.”
Value to Nebraska and her residents
- Assure Nebraska Families of the Fallen that their fallen hero is honored and remembered. Note: In time, Gold Star families could take clipping from their fallen hero’ tree for planting at their homes.
- Created a living memorial for people to visit and reflect upon all for Nebraskans who gave all.
- Further beautification of public land throughout the state.
- The trees will play a critical role in the creation of a healthy environment including tree replacement due to disease, storms and the natural life cycle of trees.
- Provides a unique, large scale approach to increase tourism revenue. This would be supported and promoted by publications, media and civic organizations throughout the state.
