Although I have been to Arlington numerous times in the past, I had never been to the wreath laying ceremony before. I could not believe the amount of folks there. Actually it was pretty amazing.

I cannot begin to describe the awe, the honor and the sadness I felt and witnessed. I had the honor of escorting the wives and the children of the heros that died on Extortion 17 . It was a day full of camaraderie, laughter and profound sadness. I feel blessed to have particpated in an event for thse women who have given and lost so much.

please join me in praying for these very strong women and their children.

Believe it or not, these poor women were harassed last year and we were there to provide "PSD" for them. Thankfully we only had minor nuisances this year.

Nice, did the same thing today with the jeep club. We rode up to Bushnell, Fl...

Laid 8500 wreaths I think it was. No where near enough for the amount of people there and not enough for all the sites.

They announced that Arlington got 135,000 laid this morning.

We spent the day at Bushnell National Cemetery laying wreaths, always a very humbling experience.

What kind of person is sick enough to harass them?

And Joe Biden is still VPOTUS.

He should be made to pay for that.

Thats the question I want to know the answer to. I cant get into to much detail but the harassment is on several levels from stalking to insensitive comments.

Thanks bro! We werent actually Patriot Guards (I dont want to take credit for that). Its a long story but suffice to say we were asked to keep an eye on them and provided security from the Hotel to the cemetary and back. Spent a lot of personal time together since a couple of dudes (Not me just a friend) are in the community.

I may not have been a SEAL, but I did spend 7 1/2 years in the USAF and while I never saw combat, my blood is boiling over what that article says about the new ROI under 0bama...I don't remember learning about that while in, so it must have changed.

According to that article Obama is a pos. but we all knew that.

Roger that.

If you ever need another warm body for your detail give me a holler.

I ended up having to work yesterday, otherwise I would have been there.

Next year, 150th anniversary of ANC, Wreaths Across America has the goal of putting a wreath on every single headstone at ANC.
