The Lima Company Memorial:
The Eyes of Freedom,

is a remembrance for all who have answered the call of service. The Memorial now travels to tell the story of love and sacrifice, as a reminder of the great price men & women are willing to pay for their country.



It all started with a dream…

The Eyes of Freedom: Lima Company Memorial was created as a result of a vision of an Ohio artist, in which she saw the finished memorial and felt she was being asked to create it. With the help of the families of the fallen and the returned Marines of Lima Co. 3/25, the work was created and unveiled in the Ohio State House Rotunda in 2008, as the vision foretold.

Although the paintings in this Memorial specifically depict the 23 fallen from Lima 3/25, it now travels the country Honoring All Who Answer Our Nation’s Call; Then, Now, and Tomorrow. Behind each portrait stand the thousands of men and women who have served, fought, and even died for their country, in every branch of the armed forces.

It has been said, “There is no greater love than this: than one lay down his life for his friends.” These Marines and thousands more have given their lives for us. The Memorial now travels to tell their story, a reminder of the great price men & women are willing to pay for their country.
