Our Story

I spent a year in Baghdad in 2003 and 2004, and witnessed first hand the reality that our military deploys today as a global coalition of forces. After my husband was killed in the Army, I found ways to honor his life and service by also serving with that global community – now made up of those who, like me, had sacrificed for freedom.

Our work now with TAPS International addresses the need for a solid and sustained network of support for all who are grieving the death of a military loved one. Today, we stand together, bonded forever in the universality of grief, our respect for all who have served and died, and our dedication to peace.
