Memorial Day, American Gold Star Mothers and Eyes Wide Open

A few months ago I received a call from an American Gold Star Mother from Cincinnati Ohio inquiring about the Eyes Wide Open Ohio exhibit. I soon realized that she was not only an AGS mother, but also the president of the Ohio chapter. Rebecca Frank, who lost her son Captain Warren A. Frank in Iraq in November of 2008, shared with me her interest in showing the exhibit in Cincinnati over Memorial Day weekend. We talked for a while and I told Rebecca that we had decided to disband the exhibit and that we were looking for a permanent home.
