Rachael Flick remembers her husband.

"When Micah died, they took him from the hospital to the coroner's office. You all showed up in the thousands ... and it was so powerful to be able to say, "It was so powerful to be able to say, 'These women and men are standing here and saluting because he was a hero and he gave his life for this community.'" - Rachael Flick
