The 3rd Infantry Division will honor seven fallen heroes, including two from Fort Benning's 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, with a tree dedication ceremony Thursday at Warriors Walk on Fort Stewart.
Pfc. Richard P. Langenbrunner, 19, of Fort Wayne, Ind., died last April in Rustamiyah, Iraq, of injuries suffered in a non-combat related incident. He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment.
Another 2-69 soldier, Pfc. Robert A. Liggett, 23, of Urbana, Ill., died last May, also in Rustamiyah, from injuries he suffered in a non-combat related incident.
The addition of a memorial Eastern Red Bud tree for each of these fallen soldiers brings the total number of trees on Warriors Walk to 393.
