Moving Tribute To Fallen Hero
(August 26, 2009)
Staff Sgt. John Beale
| ||A friend, who is a Marine veteran, made me aware of a very moving video about the wonderfully memorable journey of the body of fallen hero Staff Sergeant First Class John C. Beale (39) being returned to Falcon Field in Peachtree City, Georgia, just south of Atlanta, on June 11, 2009 . . . Sergeant Beale and two fellow soldiers, Maj. Kevin M. Jenrette (37) and Spc. Jeffrey W. Jordan (21), were killed in action the week before (June 5, 2009) in Afghanistan.|
Well, all I can say is that . . . it was very emotional seeing all the fellow American's honoring Sergeant Beale along the entire route to Falcon Field.
It also reminded me (again) of all the other brave ones who made the ultimate sacrifice . . . with all deserving the same. And being the father of a Marine veteran who served in Iraq . . . it was especially heart grabbing to see the love and pride shown towards Sergeant Beale.
|In fact, my poems, Honoring The Fallen and Tears For Your Fallen, came from the same emotions and will remain my perpetual homage to all of the fallen heroes. (My poem, Our Wounded, was written as an ongoing tribute to all who bear the physical and mental scars that resulted from bravely serving the USA.)|
So, I hope you set aside some quiet time to experience this endearing display of respect by fellow Americans towards Staff Sergeant John C. Beale . . . as it exemplifies how every American should feel towards our fallen heroes and troops.
|Nor should there ever be politics here . . . as fellow Americans' Uncommon Valor over the enduring |
course of our beloved America are why we all remain free and enjoy all that our great country is . . . And none more so than the fallen and wounded heroes . . . like Staff Sergeant John Beale, Maj. Kevin Jenrette, and Spc. Jeffrey Jordan!
