Honoring Their Sacrafice

Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home.

Although the Veterans Administration is embroiled in scandal right now, let’s not forget about the good things it does. While we may all be disappointed with the V.A.’s recent actions, let’s remember it is not about the organization. Rather, it’s what the people, and this post, is about—the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) and the children of fallen heroes.
