An organization is touring the country with artifacts from 9/11's Ground Zero. The Gold Star 11 tour will be making its way through Kansas next month with a unique piece of memorabilia, according to Tonya Evans of the American Fallen Warrior Memorial Foundation. 

Evans hopes people will come out to the events and show their support of war veterans.

Evans wants the tour to raise awareness for the American Fallen Warrior Memorial, which her organization hopes to build in Kansas City, Kansas. The group needs to raise an estimated $37 million for the project. The Gold Star 11 tour will visit four cities in Kansas from September 11 through September 14. For more information, visit
