The Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial was founded and established in 2005 by several local Veterans who had a vision to build a beautiful tribute to all of the men and women in uniform from Ohio that have made the ultimate sacrifice defending our Country in the Global War on Terrorism since September 11, 2001.
Thanks to the efforts of countless volunteers, the Village of Sunbury and many financial contributors the memorial became a reality when it was dedicated on June 30, 2007.
The Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial is recognized by Ohio House Resolution 30 as Ohio’s only recognized Memorial honoring all Ohio Military personnel killed in the War on Terrorism.
The Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial Committee is made up of an all volunteer work force and is governed by the OFHM Board of Trustees and the Officer’s of the corporation. Regular meetings of the OFHM Committee are held the Second Tuesday of each month @ 7:00pm on the upper level of the Sunbury United Methodist Church. (Located across the street from the memorial)
Any individual representing any branch of the armed services from the State of Ohio who has been killed or missing in action since September 11, 2001 in the War on Terrorism will be recognized by this memorial.
It is costly to maintain and operate this living memorial, we are always in need of financial assistance. You can click on the donate now tab and you will be able to see the options that work best for you.
The OFH committee needs individuals who are willing to roll up their sleeves and work with the committee to be good ambassadors for the Memorial. If you are interested in volunteering email us at: email@example.com
This site is within 10 miles of the geographical center of Ohio and very accessible to all. Sunbury officials were approached about the project, the land was then designated by the Village of Sunbury in 2005.
