I’m going to write more on my observations from a funeral and graveside service I attended this morning. But right now I wanted to mention how incredibly poignant and moving a funeral with military honors is. I always get a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes when I attend one. The precision with which the honor guard performs their duties at these services adds a degree of respect, honor, dignity, emotion, and appreciation that is unparalleled by anything else I have ever seen. It makes me proud to be an American that our military sees fit to honor our fallen servicemen and women in such an incredible way. From the carrying of the casket to the playing of taps, these men and women serve a very important and meaningful purpose and are to be commended. Thanks!
