The Gold Star: An honor no one wants.
The highest honor a military member can pay for the price of freedom is their life. The call is answered by less than 1% of the U.S. population; this privilege is reserved for the men and women who are ready to serve a purpose bigger than themselves.
Today we stood in the shadows and paid silent respects as a new Gold Star family laid their son to rest.
Our prayers are with this Marine's family and your loved one's name is etched on our hearts with the utmost respect.
