The ceremony took place at Warrior Memorial Park as soldiers and civilians fought back tears, remembering the men and women who lost their lives defending the United States. Total, 96 Fort Polk Soldiers made the ultimate sacrifice in the Middle East since 2003.
Fort Polk is proud to be the home of heroes, housing the Joint Readiness Training Center. Saturday the community got an inside look at their training during Fort Polk's Annual Box Tour. But, the experience was particularly special for the soldiers' kids, who were amazed to see how their dads and moms serve the nation.
