Deborah Tainsh Signs Books at National Infantry Museum, Sept. 8, 2018
September 8, 2018 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Deborah Tainsh, Gold Star wife and mother, and author of Heart of a Hawk and Surviving the Folded Flag, will sign copies of her books in the lobby of the National Infantry Museum & Soldier Center on Saturday, September 8, 2018, beginning at noon Eastern.
The booksigning and other events will follow the 11 AM rededication ceremony for the Global War on Terrorism Memorial at the museum, 1775 Legacy Way, Columbus, Georgia, near Fort Benning. Gold Star family members, those who’ve lost loved ones in military service, will be honored guests at the ceremony.
The joint-service memorial honors service members who have served in the Global War on Terrorism since 9-11 and the families who support them. This includes active duty, veterans, and those who have died in the war. This year’s ceremony will recognize twenty-eight who have died and whose names have been added to the memorial since its unveiling and dedication in October 2017.
Tainsh Barracks at Fort Benning was named in honor of Deborah’s son, Patrick, a cavalry scout who was killed in action February 12, 2004. He was posthumously awarded both the Bronze and Silver Stars. Deborah’s husband, David, who served twenty-eight years in the Marine Corps, died in 2014.
