FORT JACKSON, S.C. -- Members of the Fort Jackson community gathered Wednesday in front of Post Headquarters to honor the victims of the 9/11 terror attacks, as well as the service members killed and wounded in the war on terrorism.
'Today we remember the nearly 3,000 men, women and children lost in the attacks of Sept. 11,' said Brig. Gen. Bradley Becker, right, Fort Jackson commanding general. 'And we honor the hundreds of first responders who died saving others on that fateful day, the more than 6,000 service members who have given their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as their Gold Star families, and the tens of thousands of our Wounded Warriors.'
