The TAPS 2021 National Seminar, Washington D.C. was a weekend of remembering the lives of those we love, and honoring their service to America. It was a weekend of paying tribute and recognizing the inspiration that our heroes continue to place on our lives. The TAPS Grand Banquet, presented by Chef Robert Irvine by Military Chefs was an evening of celebration by families from all walks of life coming together as "one" to honor their sons, their daughters, their husband's, their sisters, their brothers, and their friends. My dear friend Christine Baldwin, librarian at The Armed Forces Retirement Home, Washington, D.C. was my guest. As we sang, prayed, and met extraordinary people we recognized how very fortunate we were to be a part of such a wonderful coming together.
