It is unnatural for any parent to bury their child, but it was a sad reality for one north Idaho mother and her family.  

On July 7th, 2011 20-year-old Army Private First Class Nicholas Newby died in Iraq from an improvised explosive device.  Newby's mother, Theresa Hart, through her devastation, created what she calls a "Newby-ginning."

Theresa opened the door to Newby-ginnings in November. It offers everyday necessities to veterans, active servicemen and women and gold star families.  

"Well I think that if anyone deserves to be comfortable in life, it's the people that make it possible for us comfortable in life," Hart told KHQ's Stephanie Vigil. 

And just like any good mom, Theresa was there for not only her son but his friends that came home from service suffering.  
"They were struggling financially, they were struggling in their relationships and their marriages and they were struggling with traumatic brain injuries and PTSD and I was mama Newby," Hart recalled.
 
Nicholas Newby's mom has found new meaning from her son's tragic death. He has made her so proud, and now she is doing the same.  
If you are a veteran past or present, or a Gold Star family member in need, please contact Theresa at Newby-ginnings. And if you'd like to donate, the number is still the same 208-660-4601.

    HYDRO, Okla. - It's apt that a maze cut into an Oklahoma cornfield featuring the likeness of a former NASA astronaut can be seen from space - and has been photographed by a satellite orbiting Earth. The image of Oklahoma-born Thomas P. Stafford is cut into a 10-acre field at P Bar Farms in Hydro, about 60 miles west of Oklahoma City.
