Military moms and the bond they have

This is a coincidence worth passing along.

This morning on 5×8, I brought back a post I originally wrote four years ago on Wednesday about this picture.

This morning, NPR aired a story with the woman who was the subject of that post, the mother of the first American killed in the first Gulf War.

It was part of the Story Corps presentation. You can listen to it here.

    Thanks for this, Bob. These days, I don’t head out to work as early as I used to so I tend to miss a lot of Morning Edition and I would have missed this.

    Listening to it now.
