Col. Stephen E. Farmen, Chief of Transportation and commandant of the U.S. Army Transportation School, speaks about the contributions of sustainment Soldiers during a Fallen Warrior Memorial ceremony March 15 at the Army Logistics University on Fort Lee. The cast bronze memorial honoring sustainment Soldiers, who have made the ultimate sacrifice supporting operations Iraqi Freedom and New Dawn, was presented by Brig. Gen. Don S. Cornett Jr., commanding general, 310th Expeditionary Sustainment Command. The memorial includes several components, such as the sculpture of a helmet, rifle and combat boots, which rests on top of a tiered wood base. A cased American flag and plaque are at the front of the memorial, and 199 carefully hung identification tags are draped across the rifle. (Photo by Jamie Carson, CASCOM Public Affairs Office)
