The names of 10 soldiers killed in combat in the past year will be added next week to a memorial walk outside the 1st Infantry Division headquarters building at Fort Riley.

The ceremonies on Wednesday are part of the division's annual celebration of its establishment in 1917 as the first designated division in the Army. Other activities planned for the week include soldier competition and entertainment.

The soldiers' names will be unveiled during a ceremony in Victory Park at Fort Riley. The soldiers were assigned or attached to the 1st Infantry Division at the time of their deaths. Currently there are 541 bricks honoring soldiers.

Fort Riley is home to approximately 18,000 soldiers. It is located about 60 miles west of Topeka.
