How do you help families of fallen military know they are not alone? How do you support them, love them and provide unity through a common event?
That question was answered fourteen years ago when a soldier’s last letter to his wife was reprinted in a newspaper article in Southern California. In the letter, the soldier, who was killed in Iraq, requested that his widow keep their promise to take their children to Disney World.
That article caught the attention of a few individuals in the Anaheim, Calif. area who decided to help the fallen hero keep his promise. They promptly started to make plans to take the family to Disneyland for the weekend, but quickly regrouped when they realized there were many other children who had lost a parent in Iraq as well.
