When a soldier falls on the battlefield, the rest of their unit put up a "Battlefield Cross". The gun is planted into the ground, forming the base of the cross with the boots of the fallen soldier. Their helmet is placed on the top with the fallen soldier's dog tags hanging from the rifle.
It is eerily beautiful, a tribute to the soldier who has given his life for his fellow soldiers and countrymen and a way for the rest of their team to grieve the loss.
With the Battlefield Cross, we remember, honor, and pay tribute to our fallen heroes.
