Here are some faces you might recognize!
The Freedom Walk began in 2005 when U.S. Pentagon employees desired to commemorate the attack on the Pentagon and remember the precious lives lost on September 11, 2001. As a result, an overwhelming 15,000 participants walked from the National Mall to the Pentagon on September 11, 2005 during the first organized walk. Today, the Freedom Walk is a national tradition and continues in communities all across the United States. The Arizona Freedom Walk is a non-partisan and non-political event. In Tucson the event was at Gene C. Reid Park followed by a patriotic concert by The Tucson Pops Orchestra.
America Supports You is a U.S. Department of Defense program recognizing citizens’ support for our military and communicating that support to members of our Armed Forces and their families, at home and abroad.
