Please join us March 24, 2016 for a very special evening of honor.
Honor Bell Foundation is creating a community of veterans to foster public appreciation of military service and honor their fellow veterans with a proper, final tribute.
We will do this with The Honor Bell, a 1,000-pound bronze bell cast with artifacts from Colorado’s military servicemen and women, and rung by Colorado’s veterans at graveside and memorial services. These artifacts include service related items—dog tags, medals, badges—earned by veterans of Colorado, Wyoming and Utah and donated by their families to be included in the Bell.
When the Bell is cast in May of 2016, these items will be dropped into the molten bronze making the Honor Bell truly “forged from honor.” When the Bell tolls in memoriam, the legacy of those veterans will forever ring. As a guest on March 24, you will learn about The Honor Bell, see a demonstration of the Bell Honors Ceremony, and witness the reverent dedication of these artifacts into our care.
We will also have a complimentary screening of the film, Taking Chance. In 2004, US Marine Lt. Col. Michael Strobl volunteered to provide dignified escort for the body of 19-year-old U.S. Marine Chance Phelps back to his hometown of Dubois, Wyoming. He wrote an essay on his experience which was made into this poignant film. Michael Strobl will be our honored guest and speaker for the event.
You will not want to miss this unique event and learn of Honor Bell Foundation’s vision to honor all those who have served and sacrificed.
