No way Travis would ever put this out himself. This was in yesterday's paper. Take notice of that left chest. Oh, that and he is fully dressed. http://kdhnews.com/gallery/news/honor-guard-soldiers-for-funerals/image_04dca5a4-c4a9-11e2-9f48-001a4bcf6878.html

    Thank you Travis...

    Surely a difficult task, even though it is only a few moments of your "normal" duty, it is certainly an act that sticks with the loved ones at the service forever

    Thank you for your service, sir.  My grandfather was buried with military honors about 25 years ago and that is still my most vivid memory from his funeral.  It sticks with the family and is truly touching!!

    Thank you and God Bless!

    Travis...good stuff right there bro. I know it's difficult, but you're doing a great thing for the family. Proud of you man.

    I've only been to one veteran's funeral and I was so impressed with the job they did. It was raining that day and one solider was right at the edge of the canopy and the water was steadily trickling on his face throughout. His focus was never broken and he did his job amazingly well. It was an honor to see and my wife's grandmother was very grateful for the job they did!

    You know how much I respect what you dobut especially what you did in the sand. With that being said, if I could, I'd photoshop a brisket in your hands.

    Hats off to you. You're the man.

    Looking good Travis. Thank you for your service. During my shore duty in the Navy I had the Honor of scheduling The Navy Honor Guard and Color Guard. We did about 300 or so events a year. They would travel up 100 miles away from Cecil Field, FL. I also had the privilege of participating in several burials at sea.

    Gosh, Cazzy.  Since you're my friend, I didn't mention compassion, empathy, and understanding.

    Thank you Travis!  That's sounds so inadequate, but words that convey my feelings escape me.

    Travis - I read the article, and reading the words that are said to the family of the veteran made a chill run down my spine. I can only imagine what it must be like for you and your comrades to perform these rites, and hope that the families feel some comfort in their grief, from the respect you pay to their honored loved one.
