A coworker brought in a wood carving,...... "Missing You" by Kevin Kelly

The carving is three pieces.
I was floored when I saw this. Kevin did not give a reason for this.
Out of 25 people I work with, all but two have served in the Armed Forces.
ALL were deeply moved and touched.

I just wanted to share Kevin's carving.

Instantly made me sad for all of the families who lost a loved one.

That is a pogniant image. It also sucks when you have to mark a grave that way for some of your own.

Wow, that is real good. I still hate seeing those in person though.

Yes, seeing this in person is very saddening.
However, the general public, as a whole,
is so disconnected from the sacrafices and struggles of
the Marine, Soldier, Airman and Sailor. I believe items of this nature
are a reminder of Their ultimate sacrifice, and so honor those whom have gone before us.
