Please Join OSDRI for our 3rd year presenting the Boots on the Ground for Heroes Memorial. The memorial will be displayed from Friday, May 25th – Monday, May 28th at The Temple to Music at Roger Williams Park. The event is FREE kid-friendly, and open to the public.
In 2016, OSDRI launched the Boots on the Ground for Heroes Memorial with the widely acclaimed and dramatic display of nearly 7,000 military boots. Each boot is adorned with a name placard and an American flag representing each American service member killed in action in the Global War on Terror. The first of its kind, the display garnered local and national news coverage for the past two years and sadly, the memorial continues to grow in size each year.
