Garden clubs to build memorial garden, Friends of the Fallen lend helping hand
When fallen soldiers' family members and friends come to the Air Force Mortuary Affairs Operations Center in Dover, it's one of the most traumatic times in their lives. The military has created the Center for the Families of the Fallen where families come to see dignified transfers after loved ones die in military service. In addition, a Fisher House was recently built where families can stay on base in an actual house. Along with the full-time staff, two Delaware groups have each reached out this year in their own way to make a difference and give comfort.
"Holidays, birthdays & anniversaries have been celebrated with tears and smiles with people who truly understand what the other person is experiencing."
