Here is a email I got from my Mama with a link to a video. It's a shame we are loosing boys and girls over there but at least there is respect when one is lost and not protest. Please watch this if you never watch or read another email in your life. If you have trouble opening or viewing it, ask some one to help you or follow the 4 steps below and watch directly from Blip TV.


This may take more than one try to open. If it doesn't work the first time, try again. If that fails:
1. go to blip.tv
2. click on browse
3. type John Beal in the search box (yes...the misspelled name does better)
4. click on the one that says "A Heroes Salute--Staff Sgt. John Beale from Rep. Davis"


This is long. (about 12 minutes). You will find few things ever to make you as proud to be a Southerner as this does. You aren't going to believe this.

A true Welcome Home to a HERO.

Killed in action the week before, the body of Staff 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 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 honor 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 short travelogue of that day's remarkable
and painful journey. But only watch this if you wish to have some of your faith in people restored.

Please share widely. Click below for the video. Turn up your speakers !!!

I was at Fort Gordon a few months ago and I witnessed another one of these sad events. There were six motorcycle policemen and as many cars. While sad, it was uplifting to see the respect and honor given the fallen. For the first time in a long time I felt proud to be....
