In Episode 78, we honor the memory of those who were killed in the military and how we are affected by their deaths.
If we have family who are service members, we understand the sacrifice entire families make to serve our countries. It’s not just the person who is serving, it is also the rest of the family who has to reorganize their lives without the parent who helps raise the family.
And sometimes these are very long stretches and multiple deployments for these men and women.
But if your family does not have a person serving in the military, perhaps this is unknown to you.
Yet I want you to realize the great sacrifice these families endure, for the benefit of the rest of our citizens. And not just the wives and husbands, but the young ones, too.
And when someone in the military is killed, the families’ entire lives are uprooted.
