Taps



This pretty much KILLED me... this & the two Marines that folded & then presented me the U.S. flag at my father's graveside.

And no, I wasn't the one who took the video. I was far too busy weeping & wailing like a big frackin' baby over by the wall crypt. One of my twitter friends shot this, as well as some great photos of the service that I'll post later -- I will forever adore him for it.

Sigh.

I love the Marines. G-d bless them for serving their country so bravely. G-d bless them for suiting up and showing up, not just at my dad's funeral but every. single. day. And seriously? G-d bless them for making sure my father was escorted safely to his final resting place. That is all.
