The words “until Valhalla” hold special meaning among soldiers. The Vikings believed that should they fall in battle, Valhalla awaited them beyond death. “Until Valhalla” conveys the simple yet powerful message that there is no greater distinction in life than to die with valor and honor.
This memorial will carry the names of Every Solider lost while Stationed at Fort Hood, combat or not!
Our goal at OPS is to keep our fallen brother and sisters' legacy alive forever even if our politicians change the name of our fallen base of assignment we will never let that legacy be forgotten. Fort Hood has meaning to our Soldiers and their families, regardless of where the name came from.
