“Memorial Day is hard… It hurts more than any other day. I can’t exactly say why, other than the obvious, but there is something about it that I just, I feel.” –Antonette Hornsby, Gold Star spouse
It’s been three years since Antonette’s husband, CW3 Brian Hornsby, died after his helicopter was shot down over Afghanistan. Those who die in service to our country leave behind more than their legacy–they leave behind a family. This Memorial Day, before the barbeques and parades, take a moment to remember the men and women who have given their lives for our freedom.
For families like Antonette’s, today is more than just another day. Remember CW3 Hornsby, and all the other lives lost in service.
Together We’re Stronger.
