"Tribute To The Patriot Guard" - oil painting by Jeanne Harris Weaver
"I believe our flag is more than just cloth and ink. It is a universally recognized symbol that stands for liberty, and freedom. It is the history of our nation, and it's marked by the blood of those who died defending it."
- Senator John Thune
In January we receive a letter and package in the mail by a person who volunteered with Flags of Valor. In the package was the flag flown in memory of Todd along with more than 7,000 other flags in memory of other fallen soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines on Art Hill, St. Louis, Missouri. They were flown on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. In addition, we received a simulated dog tag with a photo of Todd. We are appreciative and thank all those who were part of this amazing project and a special thank you to the gentleman who was responsible for Todd's Flag.

On January 29, at the JROTC Viera High School Army Ball, where Donn is the Key Note Speaker, we are presented this plaque in memory of Todd by LTC Tim Thomas, Ret, Melbourne City Councilman, and the Melbourne Veterans Cemetery Restoration Foundation. Thank you to the Foundation, Melbourne City for a special presentation in 2021 and to LTC Thomas for your thoughtfulness in remembering Todd.
Todd's parents, Donn and Jeanne were made Honorary Members of the Military Order of The Purple Heart, Chapter 453 in 2015. Today, we were given this plaque at a ceremony by the chapter. It is heart warming to know there are so many people who have come to know and remember our son, Todd.
A friend by the name of Rick Beech who is a USAF Veteran has created this truck in memory of all who have been killed in Action in service to our country in recent wars. Each name and many coins including Todd's coin on the dashboard of the truck. Recently, he has created a short inspiring video in memory of our fallen. It is on YouTube:
