The “Eyes of Freedom” Lima Company Memorial – Georgia Funeral Care, Acworth

GEORGIAFUNERALKevin and Gina Marcy invite the Bright Side Readers to visit “The Eyes of Freedom” Lima Company Memorial which will be on display at Georgia Funeral Care 4671 S. Main St. Acworth. September 30-October 2, 2013.  Exhibit hours are 10-2 and 4-7 each day.  To speak with Kevin call 678-574-3016.

This traveling memorial depicts the fallen of Lima Company 3/25, one of the hardest hit units in Operation Iraqi Freedom.  The 23 life-size portraits have become a powerful traveling military tribute honoring all those who answered the call to service, in every branch of our armed forces.

The Eyes of Freedom: Lima Company Memorial was created as a result of Anita Miller, an Ohio artist’s vision, in which she saw the finished memorial and felt she was being asked to create it. With the help of the families of the fallen and the returned Marines of L3/25, the work was created and unveiled in the Ohio State House Rotunda in 2008, as the vision foretold.
Although the paintings in this Memorial specifically depict the 23 fallen Marines from Lima 3/25, it has become much more; The Eyes of Freedom is for all who have answered the call to service.

“We are honored to be escorted into and out of town by several local motorcycle groups that wish to support this traveling military tribute, and we invite everyone to visit us during display hours to honor all branches of service, past present and future. You do not want to miss it!”, states Mike Strahle, Director of The Eyes of Freedom.  Mike is a member of the Lima Company and served along with the men honored in the paintings.  For more information visit www.EyesofFreedom.org
