The 3rd Infantry Division, based at Fort Stewart, has the only living memorial in the Army, having eastern red bud trees for its fallen soldiers. The post plants one tree for each soldier who has died since the division first raced into Baghdad in 2003, and suffered its first fatalities. The 11 soldiers honored today brings the total number of trees on Warriors Walk to 359.
