FORT HOOD – III Corps and the 1st Cavalry Division celebrated life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. with an observance at the Fort Hood Phantom Warrior Center Thursday afternoon.

“Martin Luther King paved the way, and to be able to be part of this program is just very special,” said Sgt. 1st Class Melissa Lucia Smith. “It is very meaningful in a way to give back to the community and let our soldiers know the importance of what Martin Luther King did and what he stood for.”
