Eternal Flame At Fort Bragg
Family and friends of America's fallen soldiers and civilians lost since 9/11 will be among the attendees at a ceremony on Fort Bragg today. Base officials are unveiling a monument honoring the dead this afternoon. Sergeant Major LaMonte Caldwell is participating in the event. He says its very personal for him:
"I've lost a total of 11 soldiers that worked for me in my command and then also the fact that 36 was injured or maimed during the last operation that was in Afghanistan."
Caldwell says once the Eternal Flame is lit, it will never be allowed to go out. He says the memorial on the sprawling base near Fayetteville is open to the public.
