    Hanging from Shalia Swaggart’s neck is a gold pelican with a tourmaline stone, the birthstone for the month her son was born. The pelican represents her home state, Louisiana. Her husband, Kenneth Swaggart, had it specially made for her birthday this year. Last year on her birthday, her son, Pfc. Bailey Jerome Swaggart died in Kenya in support of Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa. The necklace serves as a constant reminder of him, Swaggart said.

    Saturday morning an estimated 3,500 service members and their family members showed up for Fort Bliss’ Armed Forces Day activities that included a 5K/1-mile walk, a kid’s run, a health fair and other family oriented activities at Biggs Park, East Fort Bliss.

    It was a nice day for physical activity with hardly a cloud in the sky. Participants were handed out red T-shirts which made them “stick out” as they ran or walked.
