Warriors Walk, Fort Stewart, Georgia


As this "Virtual Warriors Walk" memorial forum is named for the "Wariors Walk," I though it appropriate to talk a little about the physical-Warriors Walk.

Warriors Walk is at Fort Stewart, Georgia, home of my beloved 3RD Infantry Divsion. It's a memorial field, dedicated to the fallen of the 3rd Infantry Division who served in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. The first monthly ceremony was held in April of 2003, and as of this past May, 418 3RD ID heroes are memorialized there.

For each soldier who falls, a tree is planted along the walk. The tree chosen is the Eastern Redbud Tree, because these trees bloom each April in Georgia, which is about the same time that the first casualties were reported from the Division’s theater of operations.

See the history and photos by clicking here.

Thanks, Wayne.

It's always nice to hear the 'history/meaning' behind a thread being created.

Godspeed to all 418 soldiers memorialized there... and bless their families.

I wish that was our final number.

Thanks for sharing that bit of history with the rest of us. I and my wife are discussing going to see the walk.


It's not what they can do for us, it's what can we do for them. They have already paid the tab for all of America, now we have to repay the bill with honor and respect.

I have been there two times, once when the red buds were blooming....It is an amazing tribute to those soldiers lost....Family and friends leave things that represent their loved ones...All the trees have a strand of tiny silver bells on a branch...Not sure who place them there because every tree seems to have them...I think they were placed there because of the saying"every time a bell rings an Angel get's his wings" not sure, but I like that reason...As with Lutz the 3rd ID is real special to us down here in GA....

I'm sorry for having to come back again on this subject.  But !!

As I look at the number of views that are made on this site, I'm
somewhat disappointed in the the number of posts.

If your reading this, just take 60 seconds and post a comment.  This post can be shared with the family of our Hero.  And to think we  have up to 250+ views and only 20 or so posts.  This is something we can change.

Please after viewing, do a post.

The bells were the idea we came up with at the [Support3ID.com] reunion back in June. As we visited Warriors' Walk we realized how quiet it was with a few little dings here and there put off by chimes down the row of trees. We also noticed how over 250 trees out of those planted then did not have a single thing on or around it (they purge the decorations every few weeks or so and place them in their own section in the [3ID] Museum). This is when we decided as a token of our love, appreciation, utmost respect and gratitude, we wanted to buy bells or chimes to place in all of the trees so that they could remain there instead of being purged as all of the other decorations are

This is short notice, but I have a good friend (Sierra) who lost his brother in-law.  No mission required or flag line, but thought I share the news of his passing:

James was born on September 13, 1929, in Bethlehem, PA, a son of the late Anthony and Margaret Werner Dartouzos. James was a supervisor at Bethlehem Steel and later for PB&NE Railroad, retiring in 1991. James was a member of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church. He loved golfing and bowling, and was a former member of the United Steel Workers Union. He was an avid Phillies fan. He served in the Army during the Korean War. Survivors: James is survived by his wife, the former Elizabeth Betty Passori; sons, Anthony Dartouzos of Easton, Thomas Dartouzos and Easton, and James Dartouzos of Wilson Boro; sisters, Anna Athanasiou and Argero Sierra, both of Bethlehem; a brother, Mike Dartouzos of Bethlehem; and grandchildren, Rachel Dortouzos and Carrie Abel. He is preceded in death by a brother, George Dartouzos. Services: A calling hour will be held on Saturday from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. in Morello Funeral Home, Inc., 3720 Nicholas Street, Easton, PA (Palmer, PA).

Some things in life are awe inspiring and render individuals speechless. Each person takes from the experience something a little different. As a long as you get something from the tribute it is all worth it. I intend to make it a point to visit this site in the near future.

It's an excellent way to honor the fallen, I too hope the count ends at it's present total.
