Deborah Tainsh Delivers Inspirational Message to Fort Benning’s 5/15 Cavalry Scout Graduates

Gold Star mom Deborah Tainsh was the guest speaker for the graduation ceremony of US Army cavalry scouts from the 5th Squadron 15th Cavalry Regiment Echo Troop at Fort Benning, Georgia, on December 6, 2018. Deborah read from a letter written by her son, Sgt. Patrick Tainsh, a cavalry scout who was killed in action while serving in Iraq. She encouraged the soldiers to “always do what’s right” and their families to “show your strength and caring support as your soldiers serve.” Deborah gifted copies of her book, Heart of a Hawk: One Family’s Sacrifice & Journey Toward Healing to the graduates.
