Please take a moment to read the beautiful writing of 11-year old Autumn.
War breaks hearts
It was dark. All was sad and gloomy. All of sudden I felt myself being unfolded. I was slowly spread over a massive chest. Everyone was tearful. I felt people laying on my red and white stripes.
Were they crying for me? It wasn’t long before I heard someone mention a casket. Then I understood everything. Laying upon the casket, I watched people weeping and saluting to the veteran inside the box. I witnessed extreme reverence as the casket was picked up and carried to the cemetery. Beneath me lay a hero who served

for the rights of men. Unfortunately, for this man’s family, he will not be coming home. As the casket was lowered, I observed a fellow flag being slowly handed to a boy, whose father was gone. He sobbed. I heard digging from behind me and I knew what was about to happen. Because she could no longer feel her husband’s arms around her, I watched the mother of the boy wrap the flag over her shoulders just as the casket was lifted up and put in a very, very deep hole. Just then it went dark. My story is over. There is nothing more to say. And till this day, I lay in the ground with this hero who served for our country. War breaks hearts.

Love the awesome work that you do for those who have given so much for our great country. Consider me part of the 4F club - Friends of the Folded Flag Foundation!
I was at a pawn shop and saw a folded flag that belongs to the family of Joseph Wood Ingham III-eleventh light infantry brigade, Vietnam. I have purchased the flag and would like to get it to the family. His birthdate is August 23, 1948 and death date is February 15, 2012. I tried the Ancestry locator without any luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Just found out about event. Any chance there are any last minute cancellations at the $500 ticket level?
