Saw a link to this over at Pam's. Thought I would post as well.

Soldiers, veterans and family members attend the unveiling of the 25th Infantry Division (Light) War Memorial outside the division headquarters on Schofield Barracks, June 10, 2005. The first part of the memorial is a bronze statue of a 25th Infantry Division (Light) soldier who served in the Global War on Terrorism honoring his fallen comrade. Next year, this soldier will be joined by three other Tropic Lightning soldiers, each dressed in different military attire, representing the division's sacrifices in World War II, Korea and Vietnam.
