Lima Company Memorial Comes to NMMC

February 19, 2014

Triangle, VA –  “The Lima Company Memorial: A Remembrance of Spirit and Choice” will be on display at the National Museum of the Marine Corps Thursday through March 3rd, 2014.  This powerful exhibition features life-sized paintings of the 22 Marines and one Navy Corpsman from Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 25th Marines who lost their lives in 2005 during Operation Iraqi Freedom. 

The Ohio-based Marine Reserve unit, once known as “Lucky Lima,” was one of the hardest hit single units in Operation Iraqi Freedom.  Each of the paintings, created by Columbus artist Anita Miller, carries the name and statistics about each of the fallen men, an ever-living candle, boots and a space for visitors to leave mementos.

This temporary show is free and open to the public during normal Museum hours, which is every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The Museum is located at 18900 Jefferson Davis Highway, Triangle, VA 22172.  For more information please visit us on the web at or call 877-636-1775.
