Whatever your politics, there is a powerful post on DKos this morning.
The Cawveys keep the medals and ribbons their daughter earned during her
military career in a special wooden box. Sierra recognizes many of the ribbons,
and as she showed them to a visitor, she called them by name: "Good Conduct . .
. Purple Heart . . . Bronze Star . . ."
"Why did she get that one?" asked her grandma, pausing.
"Because she died."
