killed when an IED hit his Humvee.
How any parent copes with the
loss of his/her child in combat is inexplicable, but the way
Dr. and Mrs. Krissoff honored their son is truly remarkable.

the Navy Medical Corps to use his significant talent as a
surgeon to help Marines on the battlefield in Iraq and
Dr. and Mrs. Krissoff will be
our honored guests at this year’s event and share with us a
piece of their story and how honored they were and are to
help the men and women of the Armed Services and their
families who work and sacrifice every day to ensure that we
will always live in the Land of the Free!
