Last week a local military man, Chief Petty Officer Mc  X  was killed in a helicopter crash in southern Afghanistan.  Today his friends, and family said good bye to him with  full military honors.  As the funeral procession made its with the the cemetery, thousands of us line the streets .  We stood waving flags in order to show our respect to his family, and to give our thanks to the400 military men and woman who where in attendance.

Tears rolled down my face as  I caught sight of his family. How proud they must be of their husband and son.

Death leaves a heartache No one can heal; Love leaves a memory No one can steal. RIP

  1. That is very sweet that people lined the streets and waved flags. It's nice to know that people do care even if they aren't military themselves or even if they don't know the person or their family. May he RIP and may his family be at peace.
