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.  These are the Fathers, Sons, Brothers and Husbands who gave their life for what they believed in.  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 and in my opinion, all flags, should be flown at half staff till they ALL come home.
