Memorial Day, Remembered by Military Widows

Monday, May 30, 2011

It's become a tradition here at The Takeaway to speak with veterans about who they're remembering on Memorial Day. Taryn Davis's husband Michael was a soldier serving in Iraq. He was killed in Baghdad in May 2007, when Taryn was just 21 years old. Taryn is the founder of the American Widow Project. Also with us is LaNita Herlem. Her husband was also killed in Iraq, in April 2006.
