Thank You Mom's Everywhere
Mother's Day 2012

His mother, Grace Darling Seibold, began to do community service by visiting returning servicemen in the hospitals.
Grace continued to visit hospitalized veterans in the Washington area, clinging to the hope that her son might have been injured and returned to the United States without any identification.
