After years of planning, a garden to remember fallen soldiers is opening at Fort Lee outside Richmond.
Officials are hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday for the new Survivors Memory Garden. The garden includes a fountain and benches.
Those who have lost soldiers will be able to visit the garden to remember their fallen loved ones.
Army Community Services officials say while most who lose a loved one will visit a grave site, other survivors don't have that opportunity because their loved ones are buried someplace else.
