Lynchburg welcomes Eyes of Freedom exhibit

Posted: Updated:
LYNCHBURG, Va. -

You can honor some of America's fallen troops this week by visiting a mobile exhibit that's in our area.

The Eyes of Freedom is made up of life sized portraits including 23 Marines who died during the Iraq war. They were from the same unit based in Columbus, Ohio.

The exhibit director says he wants the community to rally around its veterans.

"Veterans that come that were part of this conflict I want them to find pride and honor. Veterans from all the other conflicts I want them to be able to look at my guys, the paintings in for a brief second look at their guys and think about their men and they will naturally," said Mike Strahle, the director.

You can see the paintings in downtown Lynchburg. The exhibit runs through Thursday.
