Military Funeral - 12-01-2019, 12:22 PM

Attended my step-brother's funeral. Full militarily send-off. He was respected. Enlisted in Army a year after high school. Did his tour of Nam. Crotchety old ba*tard but had a good heart. Our other brother and I will miss him.


God bless each and every one of you

My condolences.

When my Pops passed, my mother who was married to him for better than 65 years, held it together very well. Until the bugler sounded Taps. Then she broke down.

Nothing quite as moving as a military honors funeral.

Again, sorry for your loss.

Rip.................


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.


I have never quoted someone in my signature....but I found such a shallow, idiotic, and inane comment like this worthy!

Yep. My Father had a full military funeral. The playing of taps, is always timelessly emotional. They presented me with his flag graveside, which of course made it even harder.

Buried one of my brothers this year with a military funeral. The bugle and rifle salute add a LOT of emotion to an already tough time.

I did 20 years in the military and the last 4 years of that I was on the Honor Guard team. I can't remember how many military funerals I participated in while firing the rifle for the 21 gun salute. It didn't matter if it was the first one or the last one I did, it is always moving and brings a tear to the eye.

RIP to your step-brother
