Dave Sharrett’s Christian faith, and the death of his son


David and Vicki Sharrett. (Norm Shafer/FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)

So last week, after the Sharretts emerged from the Pentagon and their meeting on the Army’s handling of their son’s death, I asked David Sharrett Sr. how his Christian faith sustained him through the various ordeals of the last four years. He spoke candidly, heartbreakingly, about the journey in the video chat below, and both he and his wife wrote short essays about their faith that you can read on our On Faith page. Please do.
