A photo exhibit, “Remembering Our Fallen” from North Dakota, is on display this month in the lobbies of Dakota Community Bank & Trust, north Bismarck and Mandan.

It honors 21 resident North Dakotans killed in the War on Terror and can be viewed during regular business hours (8 a.m.to 5:30 p.m.) in the lobby of Dakota Community Bank & Trust, north Bismarck, through Friday, Jan. 17, and in the Mandan branch at 4321 Memorial Highway Jan. 20-31.

“The warriors of the 21st century, professionals, who volunteered to join the United States Armed Forces, grew up in the shadow of Sept. 11, 2001, a defining moment for most of them. They come from all walks of life and every corner of our country, daring to go where so many never would. They retain the face of freedom and build upon the legacies of those who went before them in a cause greater than themselves,” said Col. James Biernesser, U.S. Air Force (Ret.)

“This exhibit is created so it can travel easily throughout North Dakota, so that more people will have the opportunity to honor and remember North Dakota’s fallen.”

The North Dakota Department of the American Legion is responsible for moving the exhibit from community to community.
