The Sgt. Dan Brown Idaho Fallen Soldier Memorial will be dedicated in Jerome, Idaho during a ceremony to honor the service and sacrifice of Idaho Soldiers killed while serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. Renown portrait artist Lena Toritch was commissioned to create the heroic size bronze monument of Sgt. Dan Brown which is the centerpiece of the Memorial. The bronze statue shows the humanitarian side of soldiering. It depicts Sgt. Brown reaching out to an Iraqi child. Nearby is a wall that displays the names of Idaho’s 68 soldiers killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.
The statue was commissioned by Becky and Jerry Brown. The Memorial is in a busy community park, the Gayle Forsyth Memorial Park, where people will, for years to come, see it and be reminded of the immeasurable service of our military families.
The Public is Welcome
The dedication ceremony will include military taps, an honor guard and messages from state, local and military officials. The artist, Lena Toritch will also speak. The public is welcome to attend the event at 11:00am.
