Last week while reading the Detroit Free Press, I came across an article that I will never forget. It was called Michigan’s Fallen Heroes: Remembering those who fought and died in Iraq and Afghanistan. It wasn’t the quality of the writing that I found so moving, it was the pictures. Pictures of soldiers who paid the ultimate price. I was captivated by each picture and I made sure to read the small amount of information that was provided about each and every soldier. I felt it was the least I could do for those who lost their lives while serving our country.
As soon as I saw the article I knew that I wanted to share it here.
