I was there at Falcon Field when they brought him home. It WAS very moving. There was probably 500 people there and thousands lining the roads on the way from Peachtree City to Henry Co. Once again, I was very proud to be an American, and I don't mean that flippantly.

A fallen hero who made the ultimate sacrifice. I will pray for his family and May God Rest His Soul. I salute all of our brave men and women who serve in uniform for they are the back bone of this great nation!

God forbid there are so many people who would spit on this soldier and never know the sacrifice he and many others have made to allow them to spit on others.
God bless this soldier. I pray I can get back in the service as I am missing it immensely.

saw this via email today and searched here to see if it was posted...and it is!
Dang video quality looked like I was looking through water...
This gives me some hope for this country. May he rest in peace now and I pray his family and friends. And of course I thank him, although that is not enough.

Sergeant John C. Beale
AN ABSOLUTE "MUST SEE"
Killed in action the week before, the body of Staff Sergeant John C. Beale was returned to Falcon Field in Peachtree City , Georgia , just south of Atlanta , on June 11, 2009. The Henry County Police Department escorted the procession to the funeral home in McDonough , Georgia . A simple notice in local papers indicated the road route to be taken and the approximate time.This was filmed during the procession by a State Trooper.
Nowadays one can be led to believe that America no longer respects honor and no longer honors sacrifice outside the military. Be it known that there are many places in this land where people still recognize the courage and impact of total self-sacrifice. Georgia remains one of those graceful places. The link below is a short travelogue of that day's remarkable and painful journey. But only watch this if you wish to have some of your faith in people restored. Please share widely.
Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight.

Procession For A Fallen Soldier - You Must Watch This.
This is totally amazing. Nobody scheduled this. There was only a tiny blurb mentioning the procession route in the local papers.
The video will load and pop in.
It may take a while depending on your computer speed.

If you want a dose of inspiration as well as confidence in America, watch this 12 minute film clip.
It is moving and beautiful.
It shows a 30 mile car procession from the small airport at Peachtree City, Georgia to a funeral home in McDonough, Georgia.

Was out of town,but live 3 miles from Falcon Field where SFC Beale arrived. I'm a transplanted NY'er,but I was PROUD to be living in GA when I watched this video. What a turnout. I cried watching this. I have friends from my Iraq tour serving with the 48th IBCT right now in A'Stan and these guys are TRUE HEROES as was SFC Beale and the two other 48th Bde guys killed along with him. RIP guys!!

It is truly uplifting to see the patriotism of Americans, in these times it is a wonderful feeling to see americans show their tribute and honor to an American Heroe who sacrificed so much and gave everything he had for his country.
I pray for his family and loved ones, and for all my fallen brothers and sisters.....
