“We honor their memory”

Soldiers, civilians and family members from U.S. Army Africa and the Vicenza Military Community came together to pay tribute to U.S. veterans, past and present, during a Veterans Day Commemoration Ceremony Nov. 12 on Caserma Ederle.

“From ‘the shot heard ‘round the world’, in Lexington on April 19, 1775, to the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team’s ongoing deployment to Afghanistan, our veterans – Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines – have served nobly and deserve our sincere gratitude and abiding respect,” said Maj. Gen. William B. Garrett III, U.S. Army Africa commanding general and guest speaker for the ceremony.
