America’s Freedom Bell was created by the Spirit of Liberty Foundation and cast on June 6 (D-Day), 2013 to honor America’s Heroes, our Armed Forces. The Bell contains 330lbs of bronze and 11lbs of steal from the 9/11 Twin Towers. The Bell has the Official Emblems authorized by each Branch of our Armed Forces embossed and circling it in order of their founding. Inscribed on The Bell are the words,
“Honoring Our Armed Forces Past, Present And Future.”
Around The Bell’s lip there are 50 stars representing our Nation. America’s Freedom Bell has been rung by Patriots across America and around the World from Normandy, France to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
San Diego is the home of the largest concentration of U.S. Military members in the World with approximately 143,000 Active Duty Military and 241,000 Veterans. This is why when America’s Freedom Bell is not traveling to National Ceremonies to honor our Armed Forces, The Bell’s home is located in the Veterans Museum at Balboa Park, which has over eight million visitors annually.
The Spirit of Liberty Foundation’s mission is to “honor, support and raise awareness for America’s Heroes, our Armed Forces, Active Duty, Veterans, First Responders and their Families past, present and future.” America’s Freedom Bell will promote Patriotism as well as honor our Armed Forces.
