"Siblings are like witnesses to your life’s history. Brothers and sisters are part of your past, present and future. In the early days of my grief, my brain struggled to catch up with what my heart already knew….Then I found TAPS. It was like finding a missing piece to the puzzle. The biggest comfort TAPS gave me was the knowledge that there were others in my position." – Elizabeth Doherty, TAPS Sibling Survivor

Sharing Your Story: Healing Through The Media
By Kelly Griffith, TAPS Media Relations Manager and surviving sister of Marine Corps Maj. Samuel Griffith

TAPS Magazine | When three Marines came to my door the morning of Dec. 14, 2011, I had never felt so alone even though I was immediately surrounded by people. Then came the phone calls and inquiries for interviews from journalists. It was jarring. I wanted to hide away somewhere, but the world wanted to watch me grieve.
