In February of 2020, the NFM TV crew entered the home of Mike and Lisa Houck as we honored their fallen son, Sergeant Eric Houck with our NFM Salute. Eric, a Baltimore native, was 25 when he was gunned down in Afghanistan on June 10, 2017. The pain of losing their son is always with them. It’s just a different kind of pain as the days go on. In this exclusive follow-up, we check in with his Gold Star parents 16 months after our first meeting and once again honor Eric with our July 2021 NFM Salute.
