I had never been to a burial for a serviceman before but I was much impressed by how it was handled by the people at Ft. Logan. I almost lost it when the honor guard presented the flag to my mom. Dad wasn't one who talked about his service, but that was typical of many of his generation who served. They did it, and that was that. That's not to say he wasn't proud of it. It's obvious to me by his request to be buried at Ft. Logan that he was proud of his service.
Thanks for posting this article.
I went my Uncle's funeral at Arlington, 21 gun salute, flag presentation, taps. It was one of the most emotional experiences of my life.
