FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas - Servicemen and women from U.S. Army North and Fort Sam Houston bow their heads and reflect during a moment of silence for the victims of 9/11, and to honor service members deployed in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world, before heading out in the pre-dawn hours Sept. 10 at the historic Quadrangle during Fort Sam Houston's inaugural Freedom Walk. Army North is the Army Service Component Command and Joint Forces Land Component Command to U.S. Northern Command. It conducts homeland defense, civil support operations and theater security cooperation activities in order to protect the American people and our way of life.
