Memorial Day is a time to remember those who gave their lives in defense of our nation and our freedoms and it’s also a time to honor the family members still feeling the pain of those losses.
On Sunday at the National Memorial Day Concert, viewers will see and hear the story of Ursula Palmer. Palmer’s husband, U.S. Army National Guard SFC Collin J. Bowen, was severely injured by an IED in Afghanistan in January 2008. He died from his injuries two months later.
Listen to Ursula describe the kind of man her husband was, what it was like to get the news of his injuries, and how she views his service today.
The National Memorial Day Concert airs live Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on PBS.
