On the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 we honor the lives of all those lost in the attack. This was the day my son, Martin said, “We have been attacked on our sovereign soil and I am joining the Army.” It was a wake up call for many, uniting our nation as nothing before it had done. Love and gratitude to those intrepid sons and daughters who rose to meet the challenge and ten years later continue to do so. In that regard 9/11 was also the beginning of the Gold Star Garden. Remember to set aside June 9, 2012 to attend the dedication of the Gold Star Garden.
