This website is dedicated as a Memorial to the memory of Master Sergeant Michael G. Heiser and the 18 other airmen who lost their lives in the Khobar Towers Bombing.
CSM Gary and Frances Heiser dedicated every waking minute after this tragedy occurred visualizing how they were going to memorialize their son, MSGT Michael G. Heiser and his comrades that were killed by the brutal attack on Khobar Towers, June 25, 1996. After the initial shock wore off and investigating by the military, FBI, and news media, new information was uncovered, claiming the Iranians were responsible.
The Heisers contacted a law firm in Washington, DC. and started a legal class action suit against the Iranians. Many thanks go to the FBI for their untiring effort to solve this crime. On December 22, 2006, federal judge Royce C. Lamberth ruled that Iran and Hezbollah were responsible for the attack, stating that the leading experts on Hezbollah presented “overwhelming” evidence of the group’s involvement and that six captured Hezbollah members detailed the role of Iranian officials in providing money, plans, and maps.
The Heiser Foundation, which once was The Michael G. Heiser Foundation, changed names in 2008, after Gary passed away. Frances has chosen to remember those who have suffered tragic losses., those seeking further education opportunities, and non-profits that are like-minded to The Heiser Foundation.
