We’ve been packing. We’ll pick the moving truck up in a few days and say goodbye to Fayetteville and Fort Bragg. But today is Memorial Day. A day we remember service members that gave their lives in service to our country. So, tonight we took a break from packing to go visit the Field of Honor one last time.
There was a man and a woman in camping chairs sitting beside a tile on the walkway to the Airborne and Special Operations Museum. There were two red candles burning and beside one of the candles was an open beer. I didn’t take a picture because it was getting pretty dark and I didn’t want to intrude on something that seemed so very personal.
Something else stuck out. Directly in front of the door to the museum there is a cluster of Memorial Pavers, and taped to one of them was a single red rose. My heart breaks for his family.
In memory of CW3 Christopher M. Allgaier and all of the service members that died serving our country.
