Table Displays Honor U.S. Troops Killed During Afghanistan Withdrawal
During the New Mexico Federation of Republican Women Winter Meeting at the Hilton in the Santa Fe Historic Plaza, Jeanine Corn Best (Chaves County FRW) presented our Armed Services/Homeland Security project "The Missing Man Table" and tables honoring the 13 soldiers killed during the pull-out from Afghanistan. The displays have been presented at several events in New Mexico.
Each place setting includes paper for people to pen a message to the families of each soldier. The sheets will now be forwarded to the families with their soldier’s picture, a challenge coin from their branch of service, the candle, and the flag. The Missing Man Table poster explains what and why each item is on the table.
Americans should never forget the brave men and women who answered our nation's call to serve and fought for our nation with honor.
