The names of 16 soldiers will be added to a monument near Fort Riley's Cavalry Parade Field to mark the 11th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

Officials with the Army's 1st Infantry Division will read the names being added to the Global War on Terrorism Monument during a ceremony Tuesday at the northeast Kansas post. The soldiers were either assigned to Fort Riley or mobilized through the installation before heading to deployments.

The ceremony pays tribute to the more than 3,000 people who were killed in the attacks on New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, as well as the thousands of soldiers who have been killed or wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Brigadier General Don MacWillie, senior commander of Fort Riley and the 1st Infantry Division, will address the ceremony.
