Dedication To Fallen Regulars


22nd Infantry Regiment Veterans visited Fort Hood
in September 24, 2004 for a formal Dining-In ceremony.
They assisted in the planting of trees as a memorial
to the nine 1-22 Regulars (and Supporting Units) Killed In Action
during 1-22 duties in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
