FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP) -- The 1st Infantry Division's Victory Week celebration is off and running at Fort Riley as the famed Army unit marks its 95th anniversary.
Officials at the northeast Kansas post say more than 7,000 soldiers and officers took part Monday in the three-mile run at Custer Hill. The run was followed by a variety of competitions on basketball courts, ball fields and other venues.
The week will also include the ceremonial placement of bricks near the headquarters building bearing the names of 43 soldiers from the division who died in the past year.
