Memorial Day 2020
This Memorial Day, I’m remembering my Uncle Richard Walsh, an Air Force Colonel who gave his life rescuing a downed pilot during the Vietnam War. I knew him as a fun and energetic uncle who caught me up in his arms when I was a girl. I also remember when he went missing, and I know how our extended family feels his loss to this day. My Aunt Sharon is a hero in her own right for surviving on without him and raising their five kids with heart and grace.
I salute those in the military who have given their lives for our country, and I honor their families, too.
