Fort Campbell, KY – To any passerby, the trees planted on the corner of Screaming Eagle Boulevard and Tennessee Avenue at Fort Campbell may just appear to be an ordinary, insignificant grove.

To 101st Airborne Soldiers and veterans, the meaning of those trees are as deep-rooted as the foundation they have sprouted on.

And to think, it all started with a letter.

Janice Nikkel stands at the Gander Memorial Site at Fort Campbell, Ky., with her husband and children 25 years after the trees she donated were planted in 2010. When Nikkel was 15, she donated $20 in order to have one tree planted for every life lost during the Gander crash. (Courtesy photo)
