Fort Campbell, KY – “How do you recognize those that don’t get to pick up a rifle anymore or possibly never did, yet still want to be a part of the team?” said 1st Bn. 506th Inf. Regt. Battalion Commander, Lt. Col. Buddy Ferris. “This ceremony is a great opportunity to do that.”

The annual event gives veterans an opportunity to come back to Fort Campbell, rekindle friendships and talk about their shared experiences with the regiment.

“The veterans have told me that something was missing in their life,” said Ferris, “It’s usually that shared set of friendships and experiences they had from when they were younger.”
