April 11, 2013
RICHMOND, Va. -- Lt. Col. Steven Carozza, commander of the 16th Ordnance Battalion, 59th Ord. Brigade, leads a contingent of more than 300 Fort Lee Soldiers during the Virginia War Memorial's 5k Run-Walk to Remember on April 6 in downtown Richmond.
The annual event honors the sacrifices of U.S. service members past and present, and pays tribute to the veterans and military families who represent a large segment of the commonwealth's overall population. The War Memorial organizers presented a certificate of achievement to the 16 Ord. Bn. troops for their support of the event.
"We were absolutely honored to be a part of this community gathering," Carozza said afterward. "It was a fitting tribute to the Virginia Veterans who sacrificed everything to protect America. The
Fort Lee Soldiers who participated were excited to be a part of the day and we cherish our continuing relationship with the War Memorial." (Photo by Suzanne Feigley)
