MAJOR TAYLOR'S WIDOW SPEAKS
TAYLOR says: "This morning my two oldest sons have joined me and they're proud but devastated grandparents and welcoming their father. Major Brent Russell Taylor back onto U.S. soil and back home to the land he has always loved so dearly. To call it a sobering event would be an unspeakable understatement to say that our hearts are anything less than shattered would be nothing short of true deceit and yet to deny the sacred honor that it is to stand that close to some of the freshest blood that has been spilt for our country would be absolute blasphemy." TAYLOR says: "It seems only fitting that Brent who in death now represents so much more than anything, something so much greater than any of our own individual lives has come home to US soil in a flag draped casket on our Election Day. It is a timeless and cherished honor to serve in our country's Armed Services. That honor has been Brent's since he served in the Utah National Guard. For the past 15 years and it has been mine for just as long as I have proudly stood by his side." TAYLOR says: "The price of freedom surely feels incredibly high to all those of us who know and love our individual soldier but the value of freedom is immeasurable to all who know and love America and all that she represents. Brent himself put it best just days ago when he implored of us all. I hope everyone back home exercises their precious right to vote and whether the Republicans or the Democrats win. I hope that we all remember that we have far more as Americans that unites us than divides us."
