Fort Belvoir surrounds a piece of pier from the Remagen Bridge in Germany.

In 1945, the German Army tried to destroy the bridge, but it was captured by United States Army. After U.S. forces captured the bridge, the German military tried to destroy it multiple times.

It finally collapsed in March 1945, ten days after it was captured. Twenty-eight Army engineers were killed in the collapse, while another 63 were injured. This piece stands as a memorial to that sacrifice.
