Bars, restaurants and countless other venues across the country are stepping up to honor our fallen heroes.

After 13 U.S. service men and women were tragically killed in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan last week, we brought you the story of Texas Roadhouse restaurants across the country setting tables to honor the lives we lost.

But Texas Roadhouse isn’t the only company that’s paying tribute to our fallen heroes.

Across the country, memorials and tributes have popped up at bars, restaurants, and sporting events honoring the lives that were lost. So we figured we would show off some of those too.

Here are some of the tributes that we’ve seen from all over the country:

The Atlanta Braves

Minor League Baseball’s Altoona Curve and the West Virginia Power

Travis Tritt’s concert in Hopkinsville, Kentucky

And at countless bars and restaurants around the country.

These are obviously only a few of the many tributes that have been posted to social media – there are a ton more all around the country.

And as so many have pointed out, part of what makes the tragedy so heartbreaking is that 5 of the 13 who gave their lives for the country weren’t even old enough to drink.

It’s an incredible sacrifice to suit up and go overseas to protect your country, knowing that you might not make it back. So it’s been heartwarming to see so many at home recognizing the sacrifice that those 13 brave men and women made – just like so many countless others have made in the pursuit of freedom.
