NAT008 – (US-Memorial-Day)
FORT LIBERTY, N.C. x–08s. U-S Memorial Day services have already begun in Fort Liberty, North Carolina, where the military community paid tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice. A ceremony was held for Gold Star heroes and their families yesterday. This year, the names of five Airborne soldiers killed in a helicopter crash during a Special Ops training mission in the Mediterranean last November were added to the Fallen Warrior Memorial Wall. Lieutenant General Jonathan Braga says that this is more than one day of remembrance.
