On Friday, May 13, friends and family of fallen soldiers attended a reception to remember those who served. Unveiled were 29 names of fallen soldiers from Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan War) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (Iraq War) that were added to the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium’s tablets.

Organized by the Friends of Sacramento Memorial Auditorium (FOSMA), the names are those of military personnel killed in action who resided in Sacramento County at the time of their enlistment. The tablets are located in the Memorial Auditorium inside Memorial Hall.

Council Member Steve Hansen, Council Member Angelique Ashby, and a spokesperson from FOSMA extended their sincerest gratitude towards the fallen soldiers and their loved ones for their dedicated service. Friends and family had the opportunity to take pictures with the tablets and connect with other families of veterans.
