The ceremony was led by Col. John Spiszer, TF Duke commander, and hosted by Lt. Col. Bradley White, 201st Brigade Support Battalion commander. 

“You are doing something important for yourself and for the Afghan people,” Spiszer said as he addressed Soldiers in attendance. “Take this time to think about the ones out on the frontline.”

The lighting ceremony not only afforded service members the opportunity to remember their fellow comrades spread throughout the country of Afghanistan but to reflect on  their family and friends back home as well.
