SALT LAKE CITY -- Fort Douglas held a special ceremony Thursday to honor all Fallen Warrior Citizen Soldiers, who paid the ultimate price for our country.
Military officials unveiled a new statue honoring soldiers assigned to the 96th Infantry Division, the 96th Regional Readiness Command and the 96th Sustainment Brigade. Family members of fallen soldiers, veterans, elected officials and U.S. Army officials all attended the event.
"It reminds us that we are remembered. It reminds us that we did a task that needed to be done, and we did it because of our country," said World War II veteran Glenn Stewart.
Veterans at Fort Douglas reflected on their service experiences and the lasting friendships they made while fighting for freedom.
