Tosha Phillips, widow of former soldier, to host memorial event in honor of fallen soldiers

Phillips, founder of WINGS 1006 non-profit organization aims to celebrate soldiers, former soldiers, and those who serve our country and protect our daily freedom

 
PRLog - Aug. 17, 2011 - DECATUR, Ga. -- ATLANTA—Tosha Phillips, founder of the non-profit organization, WINGS 1006, to host memorial event in remembrance of the September 11, 2001 tragedy, fallen soldiers and their families, Sept. 10, at Central City Park, Macon, GA. The event is free, family-oriented, and open to the public.
Phillips and WINGS 1006 invites family members who have lost a member of their family due to a casualty of war, including victims of 9/11, to join in a daylong celebration that includes free food, children’s activities, live music, the collective memory sharing of each lost individual, and a balloon lighting ceremony to lift up those individuals.
WINGS 1006 was birthed from the tragedy and triumph of founder Tosha Phillips. Phillips, a native of South Carolina, married Staff Sergeant Ronald Phillips of the United States Army in October 2006.
Tragedy struck over a year later when her husband’s military vehicle encountered a roadside bomb in Iraq, leaving Phillips as a widow. With the loss of her husband, Phillips endured a readjustment of the external and internal portions of her life.
Upon finding that there were other widows enduring the same struggles with reality, Phillips founded WINGS 1006, an organization that provides support and inspiration to those who are fighting or have fought for our freedom. The acronym WINGS stands for Widows Inspiring a Nation Growing Silent, while the 1006 symbolizes her wedding anniversary, October of 2006.
Phillips has made it her life goal to lend a helping hand to families around the world who have suffered the loss of a loved one. It is a personal goal that stems from Phillips’ less-than-ideal life encounters and losing her beloved husband years ago. Phillips claims that she feels most rewarded “when I can reach out to help or just stand by the side of a fellow survivor of yesterday and today’s struggles.”
