T.A.P.S. is the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors. It's a peer-based support organization for bereaved military families where families help each other work through their grief through a variety of organized programs.

Memorial Day weekend is when they hold their Annual National Military Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp. It's basically like a family reunion for survivor families with tons of programming and support activities and opportunities for the families to laugh, cry, fellowship, and help each other work through the loss of loved ones.

Here are some of my favorite images from this year's seminar:
