Remembering those lost in action
Sandy Bohling, a learning and development training specialist with Southcentral Foundation, and Charles Bohling, a retired U.S. Army National Guard master sergeant, hold photos of their son, Matthew, Sept. 19, 2019 on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska. Matthew H. Bohling, assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment, 3rd Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division at Fort Benning, Georgia, died in Ramadi, Iraq, Sept. 5, 2005, when an improvised explosive device detonated near his Humvee during combat operations. The last Sunday of September is National Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s Day, a tribute to recognize and honor the immeasurable loss suffered by the surviving parents and families of those killed in action.
