I'll be leaving the house in a bit to accompany my friend to Anchorage for a Memorial Day ceremony. My friend is a Gold Star Mom, which means she lost a child to war. He was killed Jan. 7, 2006 in a helicopter crash in Iraq and he is one of the young men being remembered at today's ceremony.. This day is for him, and for all the other fallen heroes. Thank you, and we will never forget.
Yesterday we attended the ceremony at the Alaska Veterans Memorial at Byers Lake with the same friend I'm going to Anchorage with today. The dog tags on these boots are from fallen Alaska warriors. Her son's dog tags are on these boots.
