FORT CARSON, CO — Thursday, Fort Carson held its annual Warrior Memorial Ceremony to honor those who died in The War on Terror.
Members of different units of the armed forces honored the fallen with a wreath and salutes. The Mountain Post has been honoring fallen veterans since 2004 and a total of 407 names are inscribed on the memorial stones.
No new names were added this year according to the Mountain Post.
Several Gold Star Families were in attendance, and soldiers present at the ceremony said that the memory of those who gave their lives for our country will be remembered forever.
