Through years of pastoring, and associating with funeral home personnel, I know times of intense grieving can bring out the worst in some folk... which should heighten our SA, not lessen it. Glad this particular occasion worked out as it did for you, ppk.
    Thanks, he was a good guy and well-represented the "greatest generation".

    It was interesting hearing all of those stories of his while growing up. I bet it was quite an adventure for a young man from rural Louisiana. He adapted very well to military service overseas and re-adapted back to home when he was discharged.

    I feel for you. I buried my WWII SeaBee dad last Christmas (the same time of year my mom died). The holiday season has become very depressing for me now.

    I wouldn't have been overly alarmed with the guy, would have viewed him more as an interruption. But that's me. I can't go through life on "condition red."

    Sorry about your Dad.

    You are right, the bicycle guy was a potential interruption. I never actually saw him so I didn't know anything was going on at all. Even if I saw him, I'm pretty sure I'd only gone up to "condition aggravated".

    I used this example of something strange and unexpected as a "you just never know for sure these days what to expect. "

    GREAT POST. I would like to comment about your link. My Dad too was WW2 Army Air Corps vet. He would have been 88 this past Monday, he passed away in Jan 2005. I'm retired from LE and living in the South since 2006, I work for a large supermarket chain. The highlight of my job is helping out the seniors. While there are less and less WW2 vets , their Korean War "younger brothers" still seem to be around. Either way, these folks are a national treasure and should be honored and their company enjoyed at any opportunity. God Bless!

    You would definitely know; thanks for the input that supports why I started this thread.

    Just so I understand this forum better.

    It is more likely to engage a homeless pistol packing nutcase at a funeral who happens to be riding by, then it is to encounter a pysco sexual preditor in a restroom?

    LMAO.

    It is of course expected to put no less then 6 COM hits into the rider?

    guy had a lot o nerve (or mental problems) to crash a funeral like that. a lot of people handle the grief in different ways so he had no way of knowing what he could have run up on doing what he was doing. id say he was pretty lucky that he got intercepted before he was able to fully interfere

    Glad to see you engaged and joining the conversations. Fluid shock wave high fives buddy!


    To the OP and others, we are currently losing on average 1800 WWII vets a day. They are a great loss to our society.

    You may now carry on with your absurd non-directional bantering.

    Sorry, I'm not quite getting the point you're making, especially the 6 hits on Center Of Mass part? Maybe post #9 above might clear things up a bit?

    Good luck, and welcome to the forum.

    Yeah, the possible "mental problem" issue is worrisome, and him potentially being offended by being asked to leave could have caused him to escalate things much further. I'm glad it all worked out quietly.

    Sorry about your loss. We are losing the Greatest Generation far too quickly. More than ever this nation needs the example of these great men and women whose entire generation exemplified the meaning of duty honor courage integrity and service.

    Was going to pass on this but I keep thinking that from your other post your dad might just be the kind of guy who would befriend some one regardless of their social economic status. The guy on the bike might of actually been a friend come to pay his respects. Hope not.

    You are exactly correct there. He was big-hearted and compassionate, always willing to help someone else. Socio-economic status meant little to him, actually he was more comfortable conversing with someone who was needy. However, I'm positive the guy on the bike had never met my father whatsoever. It was just a random situation at the cemetery.
