The ceremony was followed by a moment of silence in remembrance of veterans from every year, every war and every conflict, and for the Currahee Soldiers who have already sacrificed their lives during this deployment.

“The nation owes a great debt to our veterans – to those of you standing here, to the 4,200 other active duty Currahees around the planet, and all of those who have ever served in this great regiment and beyond; who’s service to our nation spans every decade, every year, every day of our country’s existence,” said Jenkins. “Veterans have proudly carried the torch of liberty for all to see, and we will continue to do so and hand it off ever higher to those who follow us.”
