Artist credit: Anonymous Soldiers who served in Kirkuk, Iraq throughout the years. They initiated the memorial walls and maintained them throughout the war passing on the torch from unit to unit and added names as the war continued.
Below is a gallery featuring a T-Wall Memorial that was painted by Soldiers, for Soldiers to honor the 4411 US Military Servicemembers killed in Operation Iraq Freedom (2003-2010). A final Twall was maintained to memorialize those killed during Operation New Dawn (67 total) until Camp Warrior was closed in 2011.
