Remembrance Ceremony Honors Fallen Service Members, Military Families

Kenny V. Butler and his wife, Laura, display the Gold Medal of Remembrance at the "A Time of Remembrance" ceremony in Washington, D.C., Sept. 20, 2008. The Butlers are mourning the loss of their 21-year-old son, Army Cpl. Kenneth Tyler Butler, who died in Baghdad on Feb. 1, 2007, when the military vehicle he was riding in accidently flipped over into a water-filled canal. The medal will go to the Butlers' year-and-a-half-old grandson, Austin Tyler Butler, who lives in Michigan.
