Ohio Statehouse display pays tribute to Marines

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A display that now can be seen at the Ohio Statehouse pays tribute to a Marine reserve unit based in Columbus that lost 22 Marines and a Navy Corpsman in Iraq back in 2005.

The exhibit on the Lima Company includes boots and dog tags of the fallen Marines and paintings by a Columbus artist.

Fifteen of the 23 who died were from Ohio.

The exhibit in Columbus will be on display until March 17.

The Lima Company Memorial has traveled across the country and has been displayed at nearly 70 sites nationwide.
