One military wife is remembering her husband on this Memorial Day.

FOX's Lucas Tomlinson has "Military Matters":

Jane Horton lost her husband Chris, an Army sniper, on September 9, 2011 in Eastern Afghanistan. She told me that on Memorial Day it's not about honoring veterans:

(Horton) "I honor veterans 364 days out of the year, but this is the one day for the dead."

26-year-old specialist Christopher Horton was part of a nine-man kill team when his unit was ambushed by the Taliban. Two other members of his Oklahoma National Guard unit were also killed:

(Horton) "If we don't give them a voice, if we don't tell their stories, if we don't tell people they existed, then people will never know that they were there and that's the point of Memorial Day."

Jane recently traveled to Afghanistan with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Joe Dunford. She did not see closure, but instead wanted to show support for the war and tell the troops:

(Horton) "My husband may have been killed over here, but the enemy didn't win."
