“I think of Afghanistan each morning, as I slip on a silver bracelet with my dad’s name on it and details of where and when he died,” said Nick Ochsner, whose father, SFC James Ochsner, was killed in Afghanistan by a roadside bomb in 2005.

“My dad’s sacrifice was worth it 16 years ago. I’m not sure I could say the same if he died there today. That makes me sad. And angry. And it should make you sad and angry, too,” said Ochsner.
