Memorial Day - A Time To Reflect Part II

Click link for story

Unfortunately, I have some sad news to report. As you may know, my last post chronicled my experience with Pfc James Coon, who was killed in Iraq by sniper fire a few years ago.

It seems that Pfc Coon's stepmother, overwhelmed with grief nearly 2 years after her stepson's death, committed suicide on Mothers Day so that she could be with her son in heaven.

This is another glaring example of the sacrifices our brave men and women's families have to endure as well. Marie Coon, rest in peace. May you finally find some peace with your stepson in heaven.

America is eternally grateful to both of you.
