Main Line Armory was founded by two Iraq War Veterans who wanted to honor the service members that never made it home. In the main waiting area at Main Line Armory, you will find a Dog Tag Chandelier Veterans War Memorial. The chandelier includes the dog tag of every service member killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan. All 5,261 KIA dog tags were personally strung and hung by our owners and their children. The project took five months to complete and each tag was hung with a prayer to those who paid the ultimate price. The full team at Main Line Armory participated in positioning each dog tag onto their respective panels.
The last string on the chandelier was reserved for fallen service members from the area and their tags will be ceremoniously unveiled at our Grand Opening event.
One of the Vice Presidents from Aerial Signs and Awnings, the local company that built the frame and panels for the chandelier, added their contribution to this project by donating a VIP membership at Main Line Armory to a local Veteran. Veterans war memorial
