WASHINGTON, May 9, 2015 – "When your children leave, a part of your heart leaves," said Sherry Warner, a mother whose daughter and son-in-law are in the Army.
So it was particularly special, Warner said, for the White House to honor military mothers yesterday during a special Mother's Day tea hosted by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden.
Warner was among 180 guests who attended the White House event, which featured musical guest Ben Folds and included military members from all service branches, military children, military spouses, Gold Star mothers, and caregivers of wounded warriors.
