Soldiers Angel Lisa Palmer, organized a beautiful Balloon Release to honor & remember the fallen heroes from Washington …the 5-2 Stryker Brigade, the 81st BDE, The Tomahawks, etc.
Saturday morning started off with the  Run to Remember group, finishing up at Pioneer Park and celebrating the birthday of fallen hero Spc. Anthony Paci before participating in the Balloon Release.  Words can’t really describe this gathering except to say it was love in all of it’s splendor.  I feel very blessed to have been a witness to such heart and to have had the opportunity to stand with these brave families to honor our heroes. It was overwhelming on so many levels.  Thanks Lisa for working so hard to make sure there was reverence in every little detail and for providing an opportunity to come together as a community in support of our Gold Star families to honor and remember.

Chaplain Gary Lewis, who arrived home a couple of days ago,  leads us in a moment of silence and Prayer.

It’s important for us all to make each day an opportunity to show our support, to honor and remember and walk the walk of gratitude.  Gold Star families….we continue to keep you in our hearts and prayers.
