Faces of the Fallen

Faces of the Fallen is a visual tribute to each serviceman or woman killed in the current conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan. The display was created in 2003 by Alicia Tallman for her senior project at Milwaukie High School. Her sister, Kelley Tallman, assumed responsibility for updating the display. All of the students who have worked on Faces of the Fallen have taken great pride and ownership in the project, ensuring that each individual is properly honored.

The display itself has 24 panels, measuring eight feet tall by three feet wide, with biographies and photos on both sides. Its flexible design enables the user to configure set-up based on available space or desired impact. The size and magnitude gives viewers an immediate, breathtaking sense of ultimate sacrifice made by today's soldiers.

Faces of the Fallen is on display every Veteran's Day Parade in Albany, Oregon.High
