I don't remember how many years ago it was, but it was the week that the lewinsky story broke I attended a funeral for a friend of mine at Arlington. My friend had been in the Army Air Corps in WW II. Got out, got a job with the city of L.A. and enlisted in the infrantry for Korea. Got dinged in Korea, treated at the 4077th MASH.
He was buried by the "OLD GUARD", and they did it right for him. It was the first time I'd been to Arlington and seen the "OLD GUARD" do the service for a soldier. As a Marine, I was impressed. Good to see this Army General Officer appreciates how we take care of our own. Semper Fi
My best friend's son was killed in an accident and they did a Marine funeral at our church. I'll never forget it. The boy's stepfather and two other pastors played Amazing Grace on bagpipes and the young Marines there were amazing in themselves. God bless them all.
