Memorial wall in Marseilles expanding

Posted by wlpo on June 9, 2014

Coming up to its 10th anniversary, the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial in Marseilles is expanding.

During the annual motorcycle freedom run ceremony June 21st, new additions to the wall will be unveiled. Local laborers have been busy adding two more granite panels, a case for a block taken from the Pentagon after the 9/11 attacks and a new viewing area on the south side of the memorial along the Illinois River.

The new granite panels will include names of soldiers who’ve died during Middle East conflicts.
