Killed in action the week before, the body of Sergeant First Class 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.

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.

Thank you. That was wonderful. I sit and watch this and simliar situations and know in my heart that could be me one day. My oldest is determined to be a Naval aviator. I know it's going to be okay, no matter what happens. But, these kinds of tributes really help remind all of us of the commitment these folks make to all of us. They just deserve so much more than we can give them.
