2012 Sibling Retreat - Seattle
"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

Learning to Swim
By Tara Cameron, Surviving sister of SSgt. Joshua Jacobs

TAPS Magazine | I share a lot as a writer. I like to think of myself as transparent. But there are still a lot of things about me that aren’t transparent. I struggle with letting others see my grief. Mourning in front of others is a challenge. Some people bottle up their anger and frustrations. Me, I bottle up my tears.
