Maj. James Musgrove, former regimental command sergeant major, carry the 187th Infantry Regimental Crest and place it in front of the Regimental Pylon at an activation ceremony Feb. 20 at Fort Campbell, Ky. The ceremony celebrated the regiment's 70th anniversary since its activation in 1943 by honoring its long and valorous combat history and all of the fallen Rakkasans, whose names are inscribed on the pylons that stand in front of them.
