‘Our Fallen’ exhibit returns to IWV

‘Our Fallen’ exhibit returns to IWVThe American Legion Riders Chapter 684 are once again bringing the “Remembering Our Fallen” exhibit to Ridgecrest.

The tribute to local servicemen and women who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom will be on display at the Kerr McGee Center from Sept. 1-15, in conjunction with the Remembrance Field display at Freedom Park.

The exhibit includes local heroes, including Mark Gomez. “His mother, Lydia Gomez, has been a big supporter and participant as a Gold Star Mother,” said April LaPierre, who is helping coordinate the local exhibit.

The American Legion Riders raised $1,500 to bring the exhibit here so that local residents can view the display free of charge. Contributions may be made by contacting LaPierre at 760-382-6812.
