About

A little about myself, my name is Chelsea and I am a Gold Star Sister. Does this mean that I am an exceptional sister? Well of course I am, but that is not where this term comes from. Unfortunately this was a title given to me by the United States Army. The only way to get this title is if a loved one’s soldier is killed in the line of duty. In my case, my little brother, Pfc. Keith M. Williams was killed in Kandahar, Afghanistan on July 24, 2014 at the age of 19. His service and sacrifice made such a high impact on my life and my viewpoint that it changed who I am. This blog is my recollection of the events as they unfolded from that day on and how it affects my life and others on a daily basis.
