Fort Hood is the largest active duty post in the United States Army Service and is usually bustling with activity but on March 12, 2010, there was a moment of silence at the EOD headquarters as the dedication plaque naming the building to The SSG Edmond L. Lo Memorial Building was unveiled. During the ceremony, Lt. Col. Geoffrey Stevens reflected on Edmond’s strong character by calling him “one of our finest”. Edmond was also remembered by Sgt. 1st Class Brad Grimes as someone who was kind-hearted and well-liked.
Our family was graciously welcome by the 79th Ordnance Battalion and other fellow soldiers. We were able to tour the building where Edmond trained to be an EOD specialist before deploying to Iraq and got a chance to play with some of the equipment they use out in the field. We truly appreciate the opportunity to be able to share this experience with Edmond’s friends and fellow soldiers.
