Twenty Trees Added to Warriors Walk

More soldiers from the Third Infantry Division are being remembered at Fort Stewart. Family members and friends of soldiers killed in Iraq gathered for a special tree planting ceremony at Warriors Walk this morning. There were 20 trees in all.

Warriors Walk started in March of 2003, and it continues to serve as a living memorial for the loved ones left behind.

"He believed in what he was doing there," said grieving mother Amy Tippie. "So as his mom I can't have anything but support and gratitude for his sacrifice and a great deal of pride."

If you would like to pay your respects at Warriors Walk, it is open to the public. You can visit any day of the week, at any time.
