Said goodbye to an Uncle this weekend.  Passed out one round to a bunch of relatives.

Taps always gets to me in a bad way.

May your uncle rest in peace.

Thanks for sharing that with us.

It meant a lot to me.

The bugle player wasn't half bad, they get a lot of practice at Riverside National Cemetery as it is the 3rd largest National Cemetery and they are lining people up for funerals every 15 minutes sometimes.

I'm sorry for your loss.

The father of one of my best friends is buried at Arlington; his widow gave me one of the 5.56 casings from the salute fired by the Honor Guard at his funeral. She has since joined him there.

Captain Frank Burnette was a company commander in the European Theatre. He was wounded at the Battle of the Huertgen Forest and came home with one leg and a lifetime of pain. He's resting, as last, in peace.

Was an incredibly intelligent and funny man married to the same woman for 61 years.  Also he worked for Martin Marietta and the Jet Propulsion Laboratories JPL and the optics for the Hubble Space telescope, and presumably any number of advanced spy satellite optics.
