A Fallen Warrior Returns Home


Killed in action the week before, the body of Army 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. The video below is a short travelogue of that day's remarkable and painful journey.

We mourn for this young man, his family and loved ones. But the honor and respect afforded to them for his ultimate sacrifice restores our faith in people; therefore the video is in the "Feel Good Stuff" portion of the website. We thank all who wear the uniform of one of this country's military branches for their service to this great country and for their daily sacrifices for us.

The video is a little long, about 9 minutes, but well worth your time.
