Decorate Warriors Walk
December 15, 2017 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
“Warrior’s Walk is a place specifically to honor those of the Third Infantry Division killed in Iraq. A tree for each soldier lost… a living monument to those who gave all. A place that families and friends and comrades come to remember… to reflect… to pay respects. It is a place that provides comfort… and for some, peace.
Every year, as most probably know, around Christmas time Family Members, Soldiers, and volunteers take the time to come lay wreaths at each Fallen Hero’s tree.
What you may not know is that every year Linda and Gene Lamie, parents of the late SGT Gene Lamie, 3-7 CAV, come to decorate all the trees the day prior.
What started as an effort by just the Lamies, has evolved over the years until it became what it is now, which is essentially the whole community coming together to decorate Fallen Soldiers trees with beautiful Christmas ornaments.”

All volunteers, children too, are welcome to come and help commemorate our Heroes and decorate Warrior’s Walk for Christmas.
