Lima Company Memorial

The Lima Company Memorial was created by Ohio artist, Anita Miller, and is now on display in the rotunda of the Ohio State House. Impossible to walk away unmoved by the experience.

 

Between May & August of 2005, 22 Marines, and one Navy Corpsman of Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 25th Regiment, died in service while deployed in Iraq. Most in the Marine Reserve Unit was from Ohio, but other fallen heroes represent 7 states from Alaska to the East Coast. The young man on the right is Lance Corporal, Aaron Reed from Chillicothe.
