The Eyes of Freedom traveling memorial arrived in Fulton County on Friday. The memorial honors the 23 fallen soldiers of the Ohio-based Lima 3/25 Company who lost their lives in 2005 while serving in Iraq. The life-size mural paintings traveling the country honor all military personnel from yesterday, today, and tomorrow. A motorcycle escort accompanied the memorial as it traveled from Toledo Harley Davidson through Swanton, Delta and Wauseon, to its destination at the Fulton County Museum, above.
