Dad served during both World War II (in Europe) and in Korea.
Jason, my nephew, died while on duty as an Indiana State Trooper (Jason is third from the bottom on this link).
Mom served by waiting while her husband, one of her sons (Gene, Jason's dad, in Viet Nam), and Jason put themselves in harm's way for others.
I found the following from a thank you card I had made after Dad's death for those who had displayed Jesus' compassion to our family.
These have been dark days of sorrow for us, and we would have been overwhelmed, had the Lord not been gracious to us. We are thankful for people whom God has used as His hands and His voice in these days.May all who know Jesus be His body to those who are lost and hurting, particularly on this day of rememberance.
