The Petition to Bring a Memorial Wall Home from Iraq

Bring the Memorial to Fallen U.S. Soldiers and Airmen Home from Iraq Petition

There are 4,336 names of American Heroes on a memorial wall located in Kirkuk, Iraq.

The memorial, created in 2009 as a joint project by U.S. Army and Air Force troops stationed in Kirkuk, is painted on 22 cement barriers and spans over 280 feet. This memorial is going to be painted over as the base closes and U.S. troops pull out of Iraq.  This petition is an attempt to convince the government to bring this wall home for Americans at home.  

The wall is quite a thing to see.  As the band toured the base, we were taken to this wall.  Each of us was immediately silenced at first glance of the staggering number of names before us.  The wall is longer than your peripheral vision.  When standing before it, one quickly begins to understand the sacrifice; what a huge number of American men and women who have given their lives in this war.  

Please show your support and sign this petition!
