Santa Barbara, Calif. January 13, 2 016— The community is invited to the “Remembering Our Fallen” memorial exhibition that is on display in Santa Barbara County during the month of January. The deeply moving exhibition of portraits will feature 721 photos of men and women from California, including those from Santa Barbara County, who have lost their lives in the War on Terror following the 9/11 attacks.
