Presenting Gold Star Banners Tomorrow

Tomorrow I will present Gold Star Banners to the wife, mother and father of a Fallen Hero. His funeral is being held about 50 miles from my house and he will be buried in Arlington later this week.

I've never seen a Gold Star Banner presentation and I have certainly never made one. However, either I'm in this war all the way or I'm not in this war at all. I cannot go on as if nothing is happening and not do "my duty" when called upon.

Please think about me around noon tomorrow as I hopefully am able to honor this family and console them in their loss.

I am just swelled up with pride for what you are doing. I have never seen the presentation but would be honored to be part on one.

I have been reading your blog for awhile and I decided to leave a comment. I wanted you to know that you are very brave. We need more people like you. I am a new navy mom so I really want to thank you for opening up and letting us in.
