One thing you will NEVER, EVER forget? Being on a commercial flight, & crew makes announcement it is their HONOR to be a part of escorting a fallen soldier home. They ask after landing, that everyone remain seated while the military escort team deboards. Of course, during this time, the plane is SILENT, except for the sound of the coffin being unloaded from the cargo hold. The Free Must Pray for the Brave! God Bless the Sacrificing Families of America! God Help the USA!
Faith is my guide

Each fallen soldier get's a personal escort home, sometimes it's a friend, a family member or stranger who is also in the services. THANK YOU,FOR GOING HOME WITH THEM - God Speed My Brothers!

'The eagle couldn't have picked a better person'
Well this one makes me want to cry. Amateur photographer Frank Glick was on his way to work when he drove through Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis-St. Paul early one misty morning and snapped this shot. It is not a fake. Requests for the photo have come in from Veterans Affairs, military publications, Arlington, and the Screaming Eagles of the 101st Airborne Division.
