More than 7,000 boots lined the streets surrounding III Corps Headquarters on Fort Hood. Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and Marines have lost their lives during the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan. The Copperas Cove Five Hills royalty pledged for the third consecutive year to ensure that these heroes are honored and remembered as the country celebrates its independence.

Clad in event shirts advertising the Fort Hood Remembrance 5K and Walk, the titleholders joined an estimated 500 participants who made their way through the boot-lined route, stopping to reminisce, admire and pray for the service members who made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure the freedoms Americans enjoy.
