A widow's story

Retired Army Capt. Florent Groberg, a Medal of Honor recipient, plays rock-paper-scissors with Ava Gray, as her sister, Nyah, keeps score and her brother, Garrett, watches inside the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., Nov. 9, 2015. Groberg was with Maj. David Gray, the children’s father, when he was killed in action Aug. 8, 2012, during a deployment to Afghanistan. The family was together at the Pentagon for a Flag for Hope event. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Christopher Gross)
