The family of SPC Vanessa Guillen, the 3rd Cavalry Regiment Soldier slain at Fort Hood on April 22, 2020, returned to the installation to join with leaders from III Corps and her Brave Rifles nearly a year later to unveil a gate on the east side of the installation dedicated to her memory. Most of the podcast team was at the April 19 ceremony, and they take you there in this special episode, raw with emotion, where LTG Pat White said, "The permanent gate makes it clear, we're not going to forget Vanessa. Her legacy is going to live on through this monument."
