This IS America!

Killed in action, the body of Sergeant First Class John C. Beale was returned to Falcon Field in Peachtree City, Georgia (just south of Atlanta) on June 11, 2009. The Henry County Police Department escorted the procession to the funeral home in McDonough, Georgia. A distance of 12 miles.

A simple notice in local papers indicated the road route to be taken and the approximate time. Nowadays one can be led to believe that America no longer respects and no longer honors sacrifice outside the military. Be it known that there are many places in this land where people still recognize the courage and
impact of total self-sacrifice. Georgia remains one of those graceful places.

The link below is a travelogue of that day’s remarkable and painful journey. Make sure you turn your speakers up.

GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!!!
