One year after the disappearance of Spc. Vanessa Guillen from Fort Hood, Texas, Army officials dedicated a gate on the post that carries her name to honor her memory. Family members and the Fort Hood command gathered across from the Vanessa Guillen mural located in downtown Killeen for a dedication ceremony. The event was closed to the public but was live-streamed on the family’s Facebook page.
The plaque installed on the gate marker leads to the 3rd Cavalry Regiment, “where (Guillén) lived day-to-day, where she served her country honorably,” said Lt. Gen. Pat White, commanding general of III Corps and Fort Hood at the ceremony.
