WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT) -

The City of Walnut Ridge is once again honoring fallen heroes.

The traveling Arkansas Run for the Fallen Memorial is set up outside the Wings of Honor Museum.

Sharna Butts has organized the memorial's stop in Walnut Ridge for the past three years.

She said it's important that the community remember the fallen heroes.

"You don't want them to fall by the wayside," Butts said.  "You want their families to know you remember them and you appreciate the sacrifice that they have given for our freedom here because we all know freedom is not free."

More than 100 flags and pictures are set up as part of the memorial.

The memorial will be set up in Walnut Ridge until Saturday, June 9.
