Gold Star father, Scott Warner, decided a couple of years ago to write a book commemorating his son, Heath. It was time. It was finally time to deal with the pain and sorrow in a way that will help others grappling with the death of a service member. Gold Star Father—Honoring a Hero, Remembering a Son not only honors his son who offered his life for our country—it also exposes the atrocities perpetrated by our government when his son’s remains were part of the Arlington National Cemetery debacle.
He figures it’s time for everyone to know exactly what happened. Scott has a tremendous testimony of God's healing power as he shares of his loss, grief and eventual hope through his Catholic faith. He has shared at numerous men's groups, military and community events over the last eight years. He has been featured on CNN, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Associated Press, Taps Magazine, Living With Loss Magazine, The Cleveland Plain Dealer, Akron Beacon Journal, The Canton Repository.
