FORT HOOD, Texas — The 2nd Armored Division (Forward) Association is hosting a Monument Dedication Ceremony at 11 a.m. April 8 at Fort Hood Memorial Park.

The association will be unveiling and dedicating a new monument to honor the men and women who served and sacrificed while serving in the “Division Forward” from 1975 to 1992. We expect to have 20-25 former members of the division in attendance at the ceremony.

Many of these Cold War Warriors, stationed in Germany in the 1980s, deployed with the division to Operation Desert Storm. There will also be a wreath laying to honor those members of the division that made the ultimate sacrifice.

Media interested in attending the event should call (254) 287-9993 by 10 a.m. April 7 and meet the public affairs escort at 10 a.m. April 8 in the south parking lot of the Marvin Leath Visitor Center.
