Command Sgt. Maj. Frank M. Leota, command sergeant major, 25th Infantry Division, speaks to an audience of friends, guests, and military leaders during a ceremony honoring the "Lost Heroes Art Quilt," a crafted work honoring the sacrifices of military service members from each of the Nation's 50 states at the Hawaii State Capitol Rotunda, Honolulu, July 21. The quilt, created by artist Judie Feingold, honors the sacrifice of fallen military service members of each of the Nation's 50 states with cutout photo portraits of the fallen heroes as children clad in "G.I. Joe" cloth jackets to represent the timeless spirit of the memory of their families. The quilt, currently on a nationwide tour, stops in Hawaii to honor the sacrifice of Hawaii's quilt representative, Pearl City, Hawaii native, Cpl. Kyle Kaeo Fernandez, who lost his life while serving with the division in Afghanistan in 2004. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Jesus J. Aranda, 25th Infantry Division Public Affairs Office)
