The Honor and Remember Flag Nebraska Chapter will host a concert to honor fallen members of the military and their families on Armed Forces Day, Saturday May 21st. Director Jim Meier says the concert will feature Billy McGuigan and Jimmy Weber at the Holland Performing Arts Center at the Holland Performing Arts Center at 1200 Douglas Street in Omaha.
Honor and Remember Flag Nebraska Director Jim Meier says their goal is to raise funds to purchase flags, host the annual Families of the Fallen gathering, dinner, walk and other events.
The special flag is tailored with the fallen service member’s name, rank, date of death and country in which they died. To date, 92 flags have been presented by the Nebraska Chapter. The flags are given to family members of the service member.
“We are indebted to those who serve, have served and particularly to the more than 1.3 million who died to protect our freedom,” said Meier. “It’s our responsibility to honor and remember the fallen in their name and help make our country better each day. The concert provides a way for like-minded Americans to honor our fallen in a meaningful and enjoyable way.”
Tickets are $60 for orchestra level, $50 for Tier 1 and $40 for Tier 2. Because of the gift of an anonymous donor, 600 tickets are available at a 40% discount.
