“REMEMBERING OUR FALLEN” Photo Exhibit of Georgia’s Fallen on Display March 10 – 14 at Georgia Military College (Milledgeville, GA) A very emotional exhibit, “Remembering Our Fallen,” is a stark reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by 200 Georgians killed in The War on Terror while wearing our country’s uniform in a war zone. The photo display, which includes military and personal photos of each of Georgia’s Fallen, will be traveling throughout Georgia and will be coming to Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, (hometown of SSG Alex French, IV). “We can never forget those who sacrificed everything for our freedom. We must remember these American Heroes and speak their names when we see their family members,” said Colonel James Biernesser (Ret.) USAF and Director of Military Programs for Bellevue University. “This exhibit is created in such a way so it can travel easily throughout Georgia, so that more people will have the opportunity to honor and remember Georgia’s Fallen.” Those from Central Georgia to be honored and remembered include: Sgt Kelley L. Courtney, USMC (Macon) SPC Mark J. Downer, USA (Warner Robins) SSG Alex French IV, ARNG (Milledgeville) SPC Daniel E. Gomez, USA (Warner Robins) SGT David "D'Maine" A.
