Barber County Veterans Memorial
Honoring All Barber County Veterans
Twin Towers Beam
This steel beam is from the Twin Towers that were destroyed by foreign terrorists on 9-11-01. New York City has donated it to the Barber County Veterans Memorial in remembrance of the lives that were lost in this incident.
We should never forget the importance of freedom and those who help to protect it.
"Lord, may the ruins of that day
be the foundation for the
freedoms of tomorrow."
