In 2020, we are seeing many members of our armed forces being infected with COVID-19. How many more children will be planting flags on their parents’ graves next year? While members of our military risk their lives to protect us, they should not be risking their lives in vain.
And with that in mind, read Honor the memory of the fallen by supporting those they leave behind.
