“It’s awesome, just unbelievable. I’ve got shivers just thinking about it.”
These are the words of Sally Shipley, a teacher at Clear Creek Elementary School, describing a newly discovered joy for what this Memorial Day weekend will mean for her and her family.
On Thursday, Shipley met Army officials at the Louisville International Airport to accept a flag-draped coffin carrying the remains of her uncle, who had been killed in action.
That’s sad, but hardly unbelievable, right?
