And this is why I call my son Gunner…
This bullet ridden flag flew off a tank recovery vehicle in Iraq.
Chris was 34 when he died along with the other three men in his vehicle.
Chris’s nickname was Gunner…. His wife gave this to me after he passed away.
He used to listen to my radio show when he was out on patrol. I told her if I ever had a son I would call him Gunner and I would give him this flag one day.
Today was the day…
We are deeply grateful to all the men and woman that have worn our nation’s uniform and especially the families that have faced that knock on the door.
Our freedom is not free. Remembering all of you warriors on this Memorial Day.
Warriors like Gunner.
With deep love and respect,
-don, Gunner, and Charlie the dog
