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!!!
Is there a better place to become an American citizen? I think not!! Happy 4th of July everyone!
Wow, my first blog. OH the pressure!!! HAHA. So I guess I will start with saying this blog will be fun for me….a journey of my everyday going ons. You may choose to check it out or not. You may think it’s shitty and that’s fine. It’s for me. Hopefully you will get a better glimpse into my oh so interesting life. 😉 Oh and don’t forget the many pics I am bound to post of my fur babies and funny You Tube videos I find. 🙂
I am trying to get used to WordPress. They say it’s one of the more user friendly blog sites out there. Yeah, ok. My page will be a work in progress. I haven’t figured out where I want to publish this blog. Do I want EVERYONE to know I’m blogging? What if I want to vent about someone and they come here and see it? hmmmm. I’m thinking out loud. I guess we will let it play out and see.
Shall we begin kids? I want to start with my fav things in this world. Things that I will NEVER buy a knock off brand of. Yep, I try to cut corners where I can…but there are those things that I won’t EVER do anymore! Here we go!
Oreo’s. I find it ironic I put a food item first. I love Oreo’s. I don’t remember the last time I had them in our house. There is a reason for that.
Intuition Razors. I will never cut myself shaving again. Expensive as hell, but so worth it!
Charmin. Guys don’t care what toilet paper they use. Women do. You see, we have to use it more than double the amount of times men do.
Clorox Wipes – Orange please. I am not a Lysol kinda girl. Unless we are talking spray. I loveeee the Orange wipes. Just ask my husband. They are the only ones I buy and I can’t imagine not having them. I use them everyday.
That’s all I can think of right now. I’m sure this list will grow. TTFN!
