Our Special Guest this week is Renee Nickell. Renee became a Gold Star Sibling when she lost her brother, Marine Major Samuel Griffith in combat on December 14, 2011 in Afghanistan. Renee was very close to Sam; in her eyes, he was her hero. Losing him was devastating. Six years after his death, she decided to honor and remember Sam by writing a memoir about him, with the hope that it would help her and others who had lost a sibling, find some peace in the process of healing. The book is "Always My Hero" and it's a tribute to Samual Griffith. Renee shares with us her journey from losing her brother, writing the book, and finding a reason to be whole again on this very moving episode of HAZARD GROUND.
