"The US’s top military officer has warned Syria it could face armed intervention as international outrage grows over the massacre of women and children by tanks and artillery in Houla.” - Guardian, 5/28/12
On Memorial Day, we are humbled by the heroes and their families who have given everything for our country. Our gratitude is endless, and we continue to lend our thoughts to the troops who fight for our freedom.
The above picture was taken by Todd Heisler for the Rocky Mountain News feature called “Jim Comes Home” in 2005. The article was written by Jim Sheeler and it won a Pulitzer Prize. It was about about a Marine major who helps the families of comrades killed in Iraq cope with their loss and honor their sacrifice. The above photo shows Katherine Cathey the night before the burial of her husband — Second Lt. Jim Cathey of the Marines, who lost his life in Iraq. She refused to leave the coffin, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her. Also, note the Marine standing guard behind her.
