started reading the Morning Roll Call after my son's death in Afghanistan in 2010 on my Morning Show on WLVR in Bethlehem PA. Each morning I read the DOD News Releases
since the start I've read 1400 names. I was on a Gold Star Family Facebook and a mother posted her son's anniversay date. I realized I had read his name so I sent her the show I read it on and other mothers sent me their dates so I started sending shows to them. A mother posted a date in 2006 and it broke my heart, I realized I didn't start until my son's death. So i said I'll read it tomorrow and any other mother , just send me the date. I received 42 names for the next day. So I found a site with all the names for each particular day since the start of the Afganistan War in 2001 and Iraq 2002. I have offered the opportunity for others to read a date or as many as they feel they want to do.
