Sweet Memories: Fallen Service member dessert sharing, part of Operation Love Letters
Michele Carey, Gold Star Mother of Cpl. Bart Humlhanz, releases a balloon for her fallen Marine. Carey wrote her note and attached it to the balloon to send up to her son in the heavens. 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.
