On June 19, 2004, a memorial wall was dedicated commemorating the servicemen and women who lost their lives in conflicts since 1979. It is called the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial. The project was built with donated material and labor and is the first one built while the conflict is still in operation. The wall is located in Marseilles, Illinois.

 

On the third Sunday in June, thousands of motorcyclists ride to the Wall to raise money to engrave the names of the fallen. There are tens of thousands of participants each year. For information about the memorial, or the Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run, visit the website at http://ilmotorcyclefreedomrun.org/.
