A MUST READ story from 2011

Lt. Gen. John Kelly, who lost son to war, says U.S. largely unaware of sacrifice.

I found an article yesterday posted on the drudge report in conjunction with the appointment of Lt. General John Kelly to White House Chief of Staff. Although it was written in 2011, the words ring true, loud and clear in 2017. It is a long article, very well written and worth the 5 or 10 minutes it will take to read. Please click the link below to "hear" his powerful message about supporting our military.


Lt. Gen. John F. Kelly, nominated to the powerful position of Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates's senior military assistant, knows firsthand the pain and loss of many military families caused by war. On Nov. 9, 2010, his son 2nd Lt. Robert Kelly stepped on a land mine in Afghanistan and was killed.
