Surviving the Folded Flag: Parents of war share stories of coping, courage, and faith
by Deborah H. Tainsh
Author and Gold Star mom Deborah Tainsh has gathered essays from more than twenty-five parents who received the dreaded news that their child had died in military service. These invaluable stories show how today's military families are surviving the folded flag and give a glimpse into the lives of fallen service members and their families. Also includes advice for other Gold Star families, their friends, and family members.
Bonus essays from a casualty notification officer and a former soldier give deeper insight into how wartime death affects comrades left behind.
"This book is an invaluable asset for understanding what really happens in families who suffer the greatest of losses." —John C. Powledge, command chaplain, 335th Signal Command
