I went out to Elk Grove to help Victoria and her mother put on a dinner for the runners, Gold Star Families, Firefighters and the Patriot Guard riders who all participated in the Run for the Fallen today.
What an incredibly emotional event.
Victoria lost her brother in 2007 while he was stationed abroad.
The strength this family has amazes me every time I do an event that honors her brother and others that were killed at war.
I am sore, tired and emotionally drained and it was worth it all.
