Event Details

Teens and tweens will get a tour of the exhibit with veteran, Mike Strahle. They will also have an opportunity to reflect and write a letter or make a card for a vet, if they choose.

The Eyes of Freedom traveling exhibition honors the service and sacrifice of all who answer our Nation’s call. The tribute includes life sized portraits of the 23 men from L company, a Marine reserve unit based out of Columbus Ohio, although the Marines were from across the United States. This unique artistic display offers an intimate experience to look into the eyes and touch the boots of those who gave their lives in service to our Nation.

The centerpiece of the exhibit is a life sized bronze entitled, Silent Battle, which recognizes the trauma and post traumatic stress that Veterans and their families witness and live through every day. The artist, Anita Miller, who now resides in Lyons, created this memorial which unveiled in the Ohio Statehouse Memorial Day of 2008. To date, the exhibit has been seen by thousands in 32 states. The Lyon’s Regional Library will host its 343rd event.
