About The Cost of Freedom event
The Cost of Freedom Tribute features the American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT). The exhibit travels the USA to provide a forum for members of the community to come together to honor-respect-remember all those whom we have asked to stand in harms way to protect and defend our great country and freedom as our way of life. They are the true American heroes and we have an obligation to pay tribute to them by celebrating the freedoms they fought for and stand to insure. There is no admission fee to see the wall. We encourage you to bring your children and educate them as to the significance of this important moment in history. The Cost of Freedom Tribute is a true depiction of the great sacrifices made throughout the history of our country.
