We are spending the greater part of summer camping near Ft. Bragg in anticipation of the birth of our 7th grand baby. Our daughter and son-in-law are awaiting military housing and are also camping until they can move. We are having a fun time with all the grands. We got our camper back just in time.
Today is Memorial Day, and each year since 2005, our daughter's family have released balloons with the names of fallen hero friends that have served with our son-in-law. Today we all were able to participate..
They all released the balloons. In past years, people that have found the balloons have responded back to report where the balloons have traveled. Some traveled long distances. We think it is a fun but meaningful way to honor the fallen heroes.
