The Remembering the Brave Organization recognizes Gold Star Families…Families who have lost a loved one in military service. They do such a fantastic job of honoring and remembering. Families from all over the country were in attendance and were met with pictures of their loved ones and a replica of their decorated uniform. Throughout the ceremony, each family was presented with medals (some of which were earned postumously), a bouquet of roses, and finally, a salute.
It’s a little tougher to read the glass on a small screen, but this was a toast and the glass read, ‘Remembering The Brave – So their Names, Faces, and Deeds are Forever Remembered!!!’Singer/ Songwriter Johnny Bulford wrote a song specifically for the organization and named it ‘Remember the Brave’. He was fantastic in performing it at the event:
Because my wife was due the day before the event, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to attend… I’m so glad it worked out! Such an amazing, incredible group of people and a fantastic reminder how lucky we are every day.
Photographer Barry Staver captured the entire day and will no doubt have additional images to view!!
