Gold Star families were invited once again by Chuck Ritz, Founder of the Hope and Peace Foundation to participate in his foundation’s 11th Annual 9/11 Path and Field of Honor event. The following moms represented the MD Chapter Donna Robinson and Janice Chance. Today is the 14th anniversary of the day that Janice’s son Captain Jesse Melton III USMC made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in Afghanistan. Today is also Donna Robinson’s birthday. They both chose to continue the legacy of their son’s selfless service and sacrifice. They joined Chuck and a group of Patriots which included several veterans and fire fighters. 2,977 Flags were placed along Putty Hill Road to represent our fellow Americans that were killed during the 9/11 attacks. Flags were also placed on a hill located in the Putty Hill shopping center named “The Field of Honor” in honor of the 162 Maryland military service members (HEROES) who made the ultimate sacrifice since the start of the “War on Terror”. The moms are Grateful to Chuck and many other patriots for their efforts and commitment to do all that they are able to remind U.S citizens to NEVER FORGET. TO HONOR & REMEMBER our Fallen Heroes and their families. FREEDOM IS NOT FREE! The saying is true WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE!
