Here’s how Colorado Springs kicked off Memorial Day weekend. This military town knows there’s much more to the holiday than BBQs and pool parties. To borrow a phrase, remember the reason for the season. Let me know what you’re doing in your neighborhoods and hometowns.

Fort Carson dedicates 22 names added to Fallen Soldiers’ Memorial

Gray clouds hovered above as family members gathered Thursday morning to remember the lives of 22 fallen soldiers whose names were added to the Fort Carson Warrior Memorial.

The eighth annual memorial service honored 21 soldiers who were killed since April 2010 and a 10th Special Forces soldier who died in 2005.

With their names permanently engraved in a nine-stone monument near Fort Carson’s main gate, the service resonated a message that speaker Brig. Gen. James Doty emphasized: “The soldiers we remember today will not be forgotten.”

Doty, Fort Carson’s acting commander, continued that the soldiers played a valuable role in establishing partnerships between Iraq and Afghanistan. He expressed gratitude and acknowledged the sacrifices of family members in attendance.

“A soldier does not sacrifice alone, for when soldiers deploy overseas, the hearts of their families travel with them,” Doty said to the crowd.

A somber song of bagpipes sounded as soldiers performed a roll call salute to those honored.
