The reflection of a Marine with 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, is visible in the commemorative plaque on the Forward Operating Base Delhi Memorial. The memorial originally recognized British soldiers who fought and died in Garmsir from 2006 to 2008. It has been reconstructed to include members of Afghan and Marine forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice serving in the district. The new construction includes refurbishments, improving the concrete foundation and two additional flagpoles to represent forces from all three nations. A ceremony christening the memorial was held in observance of Remembrance Day and Veterans Day.
