Two brothers dedicated their lives to our country. A family remembers them after their passing.

Family members say the pain of these two brothers still linger, but they continue to honor them and keep their memory alive.

"When it's your baby brother, it especially stings," said Angel Munoz. She and her family members and friends met at Fairview Cemetery to honor the brothers' lives. Each brother had a special song played for them following several balloons that were released into the sky in their honor.

Robert Arsiaga was in the U.S. Army when he passed away in combat in 2004. 

Angel's younger brother, Jeremy Arsiaga, was in the Marine Corps but lost his battle to PTSD and depression. The scar of losing two of their soldiers still remains, but Angel and the family has since been trying to stay strong.
