JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Veterans Memorial Wall in downtown Jacksonville displays 64 names of men and women from Duval County who died fighting the War on Terrorism.

One of the father's whose son died fighting for our freedom is David Seamans.

On August 18th, 2005, 20-year-old Private First Class Timothy Seamans died while serving his country in Iraq. His name, along with 63 others, is located at the Veterans Memorial Wall.

Timothy graduated from Terry Parker High and David's goal is to raise awareness and enlist sponsors to help put a Florida Fallen monument at specific high schools in the Jacksonville area. "We put our first one up on September 28, 2007 at Terry Parker High School.  We have nine right now and have three left to go in Jacksonville," said Seamans.

The Ribbon Cutting event Wednesday is at the Hilltop Restaurant in Orange Park, Florida, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.  If you would like to donate go to floridafallenheroes.org.
