Thank God It's Friday! We have a long weekend because of Columbus Day and then a short week next week. There have been some new and really interesting articles published this week and I'll provide links to several of them. I'm trying to keep this from being a recapp of news you've already read, or heard about, but I'm sure there will be someting in theses links tha will be news to you.
Here are the links,
Stewart honors parents of fallen Soldiers http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-499107
Army joint effort keeps promise of Army Family Covenant for survivors of the fallen
Gold Star event helps military families cope with death
Support Coordinator assists families of fallen soldiers
Mothers of fallen servicemembers travel to Iraq
I think it's a neat idea for the mothers of our Fallen Hereos to visit the places where their childern were killed. No parent expects to outlive their child, and to do so must be absolutely devestating. I think that anything we can do to help bring closure to these families should be done. These families have made the ultimate sacrifice and the least we can do for them is help them when they need help the most.
