We want to honor our American soldiers, specificaly those who give the ultimate sacrifice, and lose their lives in the service of the country. We are grateful for and respect them.
From now on, every time a US soldier is killed in combat, there will be a short post about them.
Kim Hedum has been gracious enough to commit to this effort. She herself is a blue star mom, and we hope that it stays forever blue.
We hope that the section sees no use, but it shall ensure that none are forgotten.
Each post for this section will start with "Blue to Gold".
Many people are not aware of the significants of flags such as the one pictured. They are kept in windows of houses across America.
Each star represents a family member who is in the military. Blue signifies that they are serving. Silver that they were wounded in combat. Gold that they were killed in action. A star is never replaced. If necessary it is sewn over with the new color of thread.
