Honoring The Fallen On Patriot Day

“Never forget.” Those words have now become bookmarks in our brains for one fateful day in September. A lot of Americans remember where they were, what they were doing, and who they were with 18 years ago on September 11, 2001.

In a 12-year, 56-quarter ongoing series initiative honoring America’s most cherished national parks and sites, the America the Beautiful Quarter Program was born. But alongside the quarter dollars would come a very specific section of the America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Act of 2008 that would more than raise a few eyebrows.
