ARLINGTON, VA - MAY 27: A military child makes artwork dedicated to his slain father at the TAPS "Good Grief Camp" on May 27, 2012 in in Arlington, Virginia. Five hundred military children and teens, many of whom had a parent that was killed in the Afghan and Iraq wars, attended the annual four-day "Good Grief Camp" in Arlington, Virginia and Washington, DC, which is run by TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors). The camp helped them learn coping skills and build relationships so they know they are not alone in the grief of their loved one. They met others of their own age group, learned together and shared their feelings, both through group activities and one-on-one mentors, who are all active duty or former military service members. Some 1,200 adults, most of whom are grieving parents and spouses, also attend the National Military Survival Seminar held concurrently with the children's camp. The TAPS slogan is "Remember the Love. Celebrate the Life. Share the Journey." (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
