"Vanessa Coulter, local chapter president attends the funerals of the fallen heroes in southern Indiana. She presents the families with copies of condolence books and makes herself available to the family twenty four hours a day, seven days a week for help or if they just want to talk and cry. Coulter will also place the family in touch with TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) for further support. Sgt. Booker may not be known to you or me, but he represents the sons and daughters of all who serve their country with honor. I have seen a photograph of Sgt. Booker. He was young man of twenty five with a fresh scrubbed look of a boy, a boy who served honorably and left this earthly home far too soon."
