The 9/11 Fallen Heroes Memorial was first conceived in 2007 and dedicated some 8 years later on September 11, 2015 to honor those who gave their all while serving our country after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the United States.
The monument, located at the Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile, AL, was truly a community effort, as countless donors contributed their time, talents, and financial resources to erect this incredible remembrance of the 146 brave men and women from the State of Alabama who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
