Fort Campbell, KY – Soldiers, family members, and friends of the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), also known as The Legion, gathered together on Gabriel Field to remember their fallen during a Memorial Ceremony, May 18th.

To a passerby, Gabriel Field may resemble a typical parade field where units conduct ceremonies, training or host unit events, but to the families and Soldiers of the Legion, it is more than that. It is hallowed ground. It is a place of remembrance.

Soldiers prepare to assist Col. Scott Brower, commander of the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), in the laying of a wreath at one end of Gabriel Field in remembrance of the heroic service of the unit's fallen during a Memorial Ceremony May 18, 2013.  Gabriel Field was named in honor of Specialist 5 James P. Gabriel, who was one of the first Green Berets to be killed in Vietnam. It is memorialized with 57 markers placed around the perimeter of the field, each shadowed by an oak tree in remembrance of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in training or combat operations.
