I Visited Ty Wood's Grave Today
South40 ^ | 11/21/2013 | South40

Posted on 11/21/2013 6:40:32 PM PST by South40

I visited Ty Wood's grave site today. It's not the first time I have been there but it is the first time I have taken a photo.

I am at Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery often and I do not plan to let this brave man's death be forgotten.

I did not know he is buried at Fort Rosecrans. The next time I visit my Dad I will also visit Ty.

What an exceptional resting place for some of this Nation’s beloved patriots? I never go to San Diego without going up to Point Loma.

Yes it does. Rosecrans is almost full. There is a new national cemetery at Miramar. http://www.cem.va.gov/cems/nchp/miramar.asp

I attend funerals for the fallen at one or both every week. We (the PGR) have two services next week for two of the marines killed in the accident at Camp Pendleton last week. Active duty deaths are always the hardest.

I don’t attend the funerals here but we fly a lot of Tx soldiers into my work posthumously.
And we line the streets.

We lost a crew from work the other month in Afghanistan.

God Bless you for doing the PGR.
I was privileged to be invited along on a ride in Maine some years back.

Amazing experience.

Attending so many funerals is not fun. But these brave warriors did not hesitate to go into battle to defend my freedoms. That considered, I should not hesitate to go through what I have to go through to honor them for having bravely done so.

...can you decode some of the language on the stone?

Well, I'm an old retired Army guy and most Navy speak is foreign to me, but I'll try.

SOCS: His rating/rank. I know Ty was a SEAL and that he retired as a Senior Chief Petty Officer, but I'm just not positive what it means exactly.

BSM: Bronze Star Medal. Ty was awarded this with a "V", denoting valor, for operations while on active duty.

NCOM: Non-Commissioned Officers Medal. Awarded for achievements within the NCO ranks.

NAM: Navy Achievement Medal. Awarded for superior achievement/performance during tenure, not necessarily during war or peace.

And the two dates, of course, are date of birth and date of death.

Hope that helps.

(And I hope I'm right...some of the Navy acronyms don't necessarily match up to Army, as far as awards and decorations.In any event, I mean absolutely no disrespect to this warrior, who has been disrespected enough by the US State Department and that POS in the White Hut.)

NCOM: Non-Commissioned Officers Medal. Awarded for achievements within the NCO ranks.

I stand corrected.

That is a Navy Commendation Medal.

While not intending to denigrate the award, in the Army the NCO medal is really not all that, that it would be put on a headstone. I should have known better.

Normally, it is the top three awards that are on the headstone, so that makes much more sense to me.

My apologies, again.

My apologies.

Absolutely no disrespect intended.

But I have never been able to make sense of the Navy ratings unless I saw the actual patch on the arm.

Even then I didn't know an Electrician's Mate from a Radio Man.

Thanks. I was at Mt. Soledad last Memorial Day for the dedication of that plaque. I enjoyed hearing Mrs. Dorothy Woods rip into Hillary and Obama with her comments. That's her in the short black dress.

Yes, correct.

A lot of the names of those bases have changed over the years and IB is right next to the silver strand.
