          Imagine four concrete barriers - "T-walls" - true to the deployed environment, standing prominently, overlooking the park's pond. Black granite panels mounted on the barriers. Brushed metal panels mounted over the granite, with the names of Nebraska's Heroes cut through the metal - backlit during periods of darkness... we will never forget. Granite panels on the back of the barriers, laser-etched with images from the War on Terror. And a battlefield cross-representing all War on Terror Heroes, standing watch, solemnly, in front of the T-Walls.

          In January 2018, Bellevue City Council approved a War on Terror Memorial at no cost to the city. Now, It's up to AHP Volunteers to make it happen - but we can't do it without your support.

          Why are we doing this? Bellevue is a deeply patriotic community with a strong military bond, and Nebraska has given so much to secure our nation's freedom. It is time to dedicate a monument to:

  • Memorialize Nebraska's sons and daughters who sacrificed their lives in the War on Terror;

  • Honor the sacrifices of Nebraska's War on Terror Gold Star families; and

  • Recognize all US service members who serve or served in the War on Terror.

          AHP Volunteers partnered with HGM Associates, Inc. to design and build the War on Terror Memorial, but making the vision a reality requires your support. Thank you for supporting the Omaha metro area's only War on Terror Memorial. We appreciate every tax-deductible contribution, not limited to the following suggested donor tiers...
