This story from Memorial Day about a Yelm military widow is poignant on this Flag Day:
“Green Beret’s widow grieves, worries; son bound for Aghanistan (sic)”
“For the family of Mark Coleman, grief over his combat death is mixed with fresh concerns about the front-line duty of his son, Brett, 21, an Army specialist in Anchorage who is scheduled to head for Afghanistan in December,” quoting Hal Bernton, Seattle Times staff reporter.
