Memorial Day Tribute: Man Honors 124 Fallen Soldiers

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a Massachusetts man makes it his mission to keep our lost veterans from ever being forgotten. CNN's Michaela Pereira reports.

Every May since 2007, when his friend's son died in combat, Robert Gramazio lines the front yard of his late mother's home with a flag and photo of every soldier or marine from his state killed in combat in Iraq or Afghanistan.

"I kind of got to know their pictures every year. It's like ... I'm talking to them," he said.

This year, Gramazio is honoring 124 of the fallen soldiers.

"I hope everybody doesn't forget. It's kind of sad, one day a year. But at least everybody remembers one day."

    I say an article a few days ago of the brave faces of young men that had fallen in the line of duty in vietnam. i wnated to show this to my son, after searching EVERYWHERE, i found Nothing! Were is the article from CNN with the pictures of the heroic faces? What happened to images, that everybody must print their words above the people that are looking at you that were actually there but have been called further? Please put their pictures back so that I my see their faces and pray for them, even though i do not know the. Thank you!
