    The Arkansas National Guard will rename and dedicate the Freedom Hall fitness center to the "SFC Troy L. Miranda Combat Athletic Performance Center."

    Sergeant 1st Class Troy L. Miranda was a squad leader conducting combat operations in “Grenade Alley” on Haifa Street in Baghdad, Iraq. While on patrol his squad encountered an Improvised Explosive Device (152 mm, artillery shell) that detonated, killing his interpreter and critically wounding four others, including himself. Despite his injuries, Miranda’s unwavering leadership and steadfast presence prevented further casualties. SFC Miranda died as a result of his wounds on 20 May 2004. SFC Miranda was posthumously promoted and awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.
