All of us at Military Connection want to extend our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of those who died in Afghanistan on Saturday. The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), a national nonprofit organization, offers comfort and care to anyone suffering the loss of a military service member. With such a sad turn of events, even more military families will need the care and support that TAPS offers. TAPS stands ready to help bereaved military families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Services are provided free of charge. For more information, go to www.taps.org or call the toll-free crisis line at 800-959-TAPS (8277).
