Honoring Our Nation's Fallen Heroes
Founded in 2012, Bridges for the Fallen is a national non-profit organization that celebrates the lives of America's fallen soldiers by dedicating bridges to fallen soldiers in his or her home state.
"The bridge is a symbol of strength, honor and respect and it becomes part of the families/fallen warriors' legacy and history. The bridge will pass the torch on countless generations and show them who the fallen warrior was and their sacrifice to our nation. The bridge is a mechanism to healing and we are proud, honored and humbled to serve our nation's fallen heroes and their families."
