The death of a son or daughter while on active duty leaves parents devastated, confused, angry and usually with no good answers to the the many questions they have about their child’s death. Parents live daily with this fear when their child makes the decision to serve, but when the reality comes to be, loss is often complicated by many factors that they could not have imagined.
