    The 2009 film Taking Chance touches on some of the aspects of escorting the fallen. I have not yet had the honor of being on a flight with the "full" treatment (guard contingent, water canon, etc).

    R.I.P., soldier.

    Thanks for the post a short time back I lost my last buddy from the 50s and 60s that I served with and I am thankful for him and his family that he went in his sleep. So many thought I would be first to go but I am last man standing. Bless all the families of the one that have served and are serving for they have a tough battle also.

    I have stood at attention in formation in country and listened to top do roll call enough times that I will never forget it or how it made me feel for the rest of my days.
    The easy way is always mined.

    As a vet......that brought tears to my eyes.

    As crazy as life gets, reading stories like this make me realize that REAL people care.

    I'll wipe my tears and hold my head a little higher.

    Thank you for the post Mandpgrl.
