Hopkinsville Honors Gander Crash Victims



Knowing that 28 years have passed, and the community still gathers to remember 248 fallen soldiers, means more to those serving at Fort Campbell than words can express. During the annual Gander Memorial ceremony at the Fort Campbell Memorial Park Thursday afternoon, Strike Commander, Colonel Pete Benchoff said soldiers carry the sacrifice of the 3rd Battalion, 502nd Regiment with them daily and it is comforting to know others do as well.


   
He says it is not just about remembering them, but living their mission.


   
For long-time Hopkinsville resident, and Civilian Aid to the Secretary of the Army, T.C. Freeman the crash is something she will never forget.


   
The Hopkinsville ceremony was broadcast live on Oldies 96.5 and 100.9, and can be heard on the Toyota of Hopkinsville Audio Rack.
