City of DuPont

Tablet #1
On September 11, 2001, nineteen Al-Qaeda terrorists attacked the United States homeland. In less than 4 hours they killed nearly 3,000 men, women and children.

Countless extraordinary Americans answered the call to defend this great nation, many of whom made DuPont their home. They committed their lives to hunt down the enemy and dismantle the network of terrorists across the globe and keep America safe.

When a soldier goes to war, the family at home bears a heavy burden. When a soldier falls, it is the family that suffers the loss and struggles to carry on. The citizens of DuPont stand behind those selfless individuals and the families that have borne the burdens of this war.

With humble gratitude, this memorial is dedicated to honor all the citizens of DuPont who served their nation in this noble cause, and the families who loved the. We especially remember those who gave the last full measure of devotion.
