Air Force Maj. Walter D. Gray Among Those Who Died For You Last Week – Weeks 32 [VIDEOS]

Military Times

When a soldier pays the ultimate price and lays down his or her life protecting the freedom of our great country it goes largely unnoticed.

I find it VERY sad we don't just fly our flags at half staff till we bring them all home.  Let's face it, these brave individuals die every day, every week.  So, why are we not flying our flags in them?

Here are the most recent hero's “who gave all” so let's fly those flags at 'half staff' in our hearts in their honor!

As always, you don't need my permission to re-post this tribute.
