Flag Presentation to Family

When the flag is finally folded and the last echoes of Taps fade all that is left is one lonely tombstone among many.

Friends and family will tell the Soldier or Airman’s story of valor and service to his state and his nation while they can.

But … one day … no one will be left who can say how or why they perished.

All that will be left is one lonely tombstone among many.

Since 1912 thousands of men and women have served in the Kentucky National Guard.

Hundreds of them have perished -- some on foreign battlefields, some on missions here in Kentucky to save fellow citizens from danger and disaster and some perished training to accomplish their missions.

They each took a sacred vow to protect us from enemies foreign and domestic.

Now it’s your turn.

Step forward and help us honor their sacrifices, Soldiers and Airmen never die until they are forgotten.
