Fort Bragg has got 7,500 Boots to honor US Service members killed since 9/11

Boots in the tune of 7500 and more were displayed at Fort Bragg during this month. They were a sign of temporary memorial service. The memorial was dedicated to the service members regardless of their branches, the ones who had lost their lives since the blasphemous 9/11 attacks.

Services members photos were displayed on the boots. The time and dates of those brave men were also written on the boots.  Fort Bragg’s Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation were also doing its annual run at the time.

The display of so much love shows that the members who served and gave their lives for the great nation that is America are still remembered. They also will be honoured lifelong and won’t ever be forgotten.

Where did the idea stem from?

The main event that was at Fort Bragg was originally held in 2014 in the stadium that goes by the name Hedrick. It came up because similar events were happening in other towns.

John Lomax was a marine for a big chunk of his life and he was also there to pay his respects to the boots on the 17th of May. Also, the whole event was sorted out by the Survivor Outreach Services and Fisher house at Fort Bragg.

 

Though Lomax is aware of Marines who passed on in the battle, he said he trusted he didn’t perceive names on the boots as he walked around the numerous columns on the field at Hedrick Stadium.

“Any loss of life is severe, so all of these are my brothers and sisters,” Lomax said. “That’s the way I look at it.”

Lomax was also trying to reflect upon the significance of the boots. He said, “It means we’ve lost good soldiers, a lot of good service members fighting for this country,” he said. “Also, this is just recent. It’s not even the ones we’ve lost before (9/11) — a lot of young people.”
