Freedom Walk is Sunday
Placeholder Image
Fort Stewart, the 3rd Infantry Division, Hinesville and Liberty County will come together Sunday at twilight near Warriors Walk here to commemorate the sixth anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001.
The commemoration, a local Freedom Walk, is part of the national America Supports You, www.americasupportsyou. mil/freedomwalk/campaign. Freedom Walks are being held in other communities across the nation. The local Freedom Walk serves as a reminder for why we are fighting the Global War on Terrorism and honors the soldiers, and veterans who are and have put their lives on the line every day, and first responders who do likewise.
The walk is not commercially sponsored, although a number of Hinesville and Liberty County businesses, the Chamber of Commerce, and veterans groups are working with U.S. Army garrison planners on Fort to make it an appropriately solemn and supportive event honoring city, county and installation first responders, soldiers and veterans and the 359 Marne Division soldiers who have given their lives in Operation Iraqi Freedom and are remembered with trees planted at Warriors Walk, commemorating their sacrifice.
The event will have groups and individuals walking either a short or long course around Fort Stewart’s Warriors Walk.  First responders, soldiers and area groups and citizens will walk.
An opening ceremony will be at 6 p.m. The walk begins at 6:15. Public parking will open near the site at 4.
