    A Hero's Salute - Staff Sgt. John Beale

    If you have not seen this video before, you need to watch this!!!


    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. People lined the route for miles to pay tribute to one of our fallen.

    Here is the original "long" version. Youtube only had a shorter version which does not do the support shown any justice.

    Long video, but worth watching. I tried to find more information about this and all I could really find was a mention that they only put a brief mention of the route in the paper and everyone just showed up to support the fallen warrior. Hooah
