Remembering Our Fallen

WHEN: Jul 02 - Jul 16
PHONE: 850-453-2389
WEBSITE: www.rememberingourfallen.org
DETAILS:
Aviation Museum have the opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices that servicemen and women from the Sunshine State have made in defense of freedom in a traveling exhibit titled Remembering Our Fallen.  Featuring photographs of the more than 300 Floridians who have died as result of their injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan since 9-11, the traveling exhibit will be on display beginning July 2nd and can be viewed until July 16th.  The concept of the memorial dates to November 2010, when Bill and Evone Williams of Omaha, Nebraska, read a story in their local paper about the father of a serviceman killed in action in Iraq, who expressed concern that his son had been forgotten even as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan continued.  This inspired the couple to create a temporary exhibit honoring all of Nebraska’s sons and daughters who had died in the Global War on Terror, its impact on the families of the deceased and the general public inspiring a project to create similar panels for all 50 states.  Thus far, Florida is one of 22 states for which a memorial has been completed through the work of the Williams’ non-profit Patriot Productions.“It is important for our visitors to not only understand and appreciate the people and events of decades past,” said Acting Museum Director Robert Macon, “but also gain an appreciation for the history that is being made on the battlefields of today through the sacrifices of young men and women in uniform.  This is particularly the case given the fact that the museum is located on board NAS Pensacola, which trains thousands of personnel for service on the front lines.”Florida’s Remembering Our Fallen was dedicated in March 2015, in Palm Bay and Pensacola is one of the stops on a tour of locations around the state.

Brent Burns

WHEN: Jul 06
PHONE: 251-967-LULU (5858)
WEBSITE: www.lulubuffett.com
DETAILS:
Brent Burns was born in Seminole, Oklahoma, and moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1958. While attending high school and Community college sports were important, but music was in his blood. Brent soon strapped on an electric guitar and was fronting a rock-n-roll band. Life soon changed when he volunteered for service in Vietnam. Several months after entering combat, Brent was wounded and received the Purple Heart. After a three year recuperation in and out of military hospitals, he returned to his love of music and hit the road performing all over the United States. Later on he felt compelled to take a year off from music and hit the college lecture circuit. Offering honest, insightful, and a humorous look at life as a combat soldier, Brent was able to help others troubled with the effect of the war on their day to day lives. Brent Burns is no stranger to notoriety.  In response to the oil shortages of the 1980s, Burns wrote the hit song, “Cheaper Crude or No More Food,” which sold 200,000 copies the first day it was released.   Paul Harvey played the song three times; the first and only song ever played in the program’s 35-year history.  Burns’ fame has continued with guest appearances on all three major networks, interviews on the BBC, and featured articles in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune andBillboard Magazine. Brent also has the distinction of being the first entertainer to sing for American troops overseas since the tragedy of September 11th, 2001.  Besides his busy performance schedule, he continues to perform at benefits around the world, including for the National Underwater Marine Agency (NUMA) of Australia, the Phoenix Suns Night Hoops Program, American Cancer Society, and Habitat for Humanity, where Brent is building a house with proceeds from his latest CD, “Margarita Smile.”
