2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team Memorial 

Memorial Concept

A granite obelisk incorporating native Hawaiian lava rock and inscribed with the names, units, and dates/location of death for each of our Fallen Heroes. The Memorial is not intended to replace the 25th Division Memorial; instead the Warrior Brigade Memorial will simply highlight the sacrifice of Warrior Soldiers in more detail and remain in a central location to allow current Warriors, their Families, and our future Soldiers to view it and pay their respects to these heroes.

The original vision for the Memorial

Soldiers and supporters of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, gathered at the 2nd Stryker Brigade Memorial at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, on July 13, 2011 for the Koa Tribute Memorial Ceremony. The memorial was engraved and rededicated in honor of 1LT Michael Runyan, SGT Jamal Rhett, SSG Phillip Jenkins, PFC James McClamrock and SGT David Luff, Jr., the five Fallen Soldiers from the
brigade’s deployment to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn 2010-2011.

Though it was rededicated with the names of the five most recent fallen Soldiers, the memorial stands as a reminder of all 2-25 BCT Soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.
