FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- Fort Campbell will hold its monthly remembrance ceremony this week to honor 14 soldiers who died while deployed to Afghanistan.

The monthly ceremony on Wednesday afternoon will be open to families, soldiers and community members.

The soldiers being honored include five members of the 101st Airborne Division that were killed on Nov. 14 when their unit was attacked in eastern Afghanistan. Those soldiers were Spc. Nathan Edward Lillard, Spc. Adam Snow, Spc. Shane Hasan Ahmed, Spc. Scott Thomas Nagorski and Pfc. Christian Michael Warriner.

The first of 17,000 division troops began returning home to the installation on the Tennessee-Kentucky state line this month and will continue returning through summer.
