Sidney Soldier's Name is Added to Fallen Soldier Memorial

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Today Grateful Nation adds the name of a Sidney soldier to the Fallen Soldier Memorial at the University of Montana.

Darren Linde died in a roadside blast in southern Afghanistan last December.

His name was engraved in a 12-by-24 inch granite tablet on the ground of the memorial row, along with the 43 other Montana fallen soldiers.

Grateful Nation Montana began in 2007 and the organization gifted the university with the fallen soldier memorial in 2011 to remember the sacrifices the fallen soldiers have made for this country.

"For the families which this memorial is built for, it's a place to reflect on the loss of a loved one," President of Grateful Nation Montana, David Bell, said.

Bell says... Not only is this memorial for the families... But also for veterans to reflect on their experiences.
