The flag on her father's casket brought tears to her eyes..... she'd forgotten that he too had served his country.

Colonel Nancy Jaax moved forward to see more clearly, and her eyes rested on something that she had not quite anticipated. It was a flag draped over the casket. He had been a veteran, after all. The sight broke her down, and she burst into tears.
