Moms Remember Troops at Fairmount Park Sept 7th

The Moms of Military Prayer and Support Group, Riverside Chapter of the Inland Empire, honors U.S. troops at the Fourth Annual “Remember Our Heroes” event from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday September 7th at Fairmount Park’s band shell, 2601 Fairmount Park Blvd.

Everyone is invited to attend — the event is FREE, and includes live music, as well as clowns and face painting for children.  A 21-gun salute, taps and a candlelight vigil will take place at twilight.

“Fueled by the Fallen” is a memorial race car team that features 60s-era Chevy Novas with the names of fallen Marines painted on them, will also be on display. The autos are a project of actor Kevyn Major Howard from the film “Full Metal Jacket” who will also attend.

“This event is to remember our fallen heroes of 9/11, local fallen heroes, police officers, firefighters, veterans, and to support our troops,” said Mary Badalamente of the chapter. She is a mother-in-law of a Marine major now in Iraq. “We are not about politics; we are about being Americans.”
