When soldiers are killed in action, units hold a simple ceremony in the combat zone. At the front of a chapel or a helipad or a makeshift open area, the unit places the deceased’s combat boots on a small box. Behind the boots they stand a rifle, muzzle down, on top of which rests the soldier’s helmet. The dead trooper’s dog tags hang from the pistol grip.

He made Tampa his final home, now West Point is his final resting place.
On February 28, 2013, a memorial service for General H. Norman Schwarzkopf was held at the Cadet Chapel.
Schwarzkopf, a U.S. Military Academy Class of 1956 graduate, was best known for his leadership during Desert Storm. Afterward, he quietly retired in Tampa, home to U.S. Central Command at MacDill Air Force Base.
