When I see the Memorial Day photos of Arlington, I know those simple white markers represent entire lives. They are the boys running across a soccer field, the kid bagging your groceries, the girls playing varsity volleyball -- every one of them somebody's child who had an entire life of promise ahead.
As a spouse to one our fine service members, I've traveled all over the United States. I'm very grateful for all the places I've seen, and all the wonderful places I've had the opportunity to live. But there's that one place, that will forever permanently hold a large piece of my heart: my own small town U.S.A. ...Arlington, Ohio.
