Dear Gold Star moms...

My name is Erin Cleary Flanagan... just got back from Arlington National Cemetary where my little brother's best friends, his fiance and my sister completed their journey across the country honoring our fallen loved ones.  Attached is a link to a video on Stars and Stripes that truly captures the spirit of the day... the final shot says it all ... and it's of one of your own. Please know that your children continue to impact the lives of many. They will never be forgotten.
