Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial

This is a memorial to those Ohioans that have lost their lives in the War on Terror. It's set just outside of the town center, next to the library.

Begun in 2005, the memorial displays a cross for every Ohio soldier who's died in the line of duty in a War on Terror combat zone since September 11, 2001. It's in Sunbury because the town is near the geographic center of Ohio.
