In Defense of Freedom

February 1, 2017Press ReleaseThe Memorial for the 14 Fallen Defenders at MacDill AFB

On January 31, 2017, 8 years from when Lt. Helton was "boots on the ground" in Iraq, "In Defense of Freedom" was dedicated to the 14 Fallen Defenders since 09/11.  Retired Colonel Dennis Keegan initiated the project in the fall of 2015, by commissioning the statue that sits atop the granite base.
