Sweet Memories: Fallen Service member dessert sharing, part of Operation Love Letters
Jerimiah Robinson (left) and cousin, Denareya Owens (middle), create memory boxes with the help of Marc Aghedo (right), 335th Signal Command’s Director of Army Reserve Child, Youth and School Services. The boxes are created and dedicated to fallen service members, and Robinson is dedicating his box for his uncle who died in Vietnam, and Owens for her grandfather who died in World War II. This activity is part of Operation Love Letters, which is an annual patriotic celebration to honor fallen service members through fellowship with family and friends gathered together writing love letters, scripting poetry, sharing loveable memories of their service member, and enjoying the offerings of some very special guests. This year, the event was held at Veterans Memorial Park in Tampa on Feb. 19, 2017.
