Gold Star Families
Since my Memorial Day column was posted, I've noticed several hits on the site from people searching for names on the list. If you came here following the name of a loved one, first, please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. Even though the column and this blog are occasionally irreverent, I am always mindful of the sacrifices made by those in uniform and I am eternally grateful for their service. After seeing all these hits, it occurred to me that merely listing name, rank and hometown is rather impersonal (though necessary due to space considerations). If you know someone on the list and would like to share something about them, just to help the rest of us know them a little better as human beings, please feel free to do so. Thank you.
