Army Cpl. Adam J. Fargo, a medic, was killed by a homemade bomb while on patrol in Iraq more than three years ago.
But his memory was strong for his sister on March 16, when she wore his dog tags and a picture of him in uniform draped around her neck.
"I love to honor him," said Sarah Fargo, whose father and two grandfathers stood by her side. "I love to see everyone honor him."
Fargo was one of the more than 300 people who gathered at Arlington National Cemetery in March for the Military Health System’s 2010 Remembrance Ceremony dedicated to fallen military medical personnel
. Set on a hill with a backdrop of white marble gravestones, the ceremony honored 244 medical service members – medics, corpsmen, nurses and doctors – who died in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom from 2001 through Dec. 31, 2009. (Watch full video of the ceremony) Read more
