Poignant photo . . . thanks for sharing . . . and for doing Daksy.
Looks like the AWOL was a good one. You are excused for this type.
Bring 'em home, but not like that.
I need a love button for this comment!
Good work DAKSY!
Good on you Daksy. God Bless that soldier's family for his and their sacrifice........
It's terrible to lose an American hero like that, especially this time of the year.......
Indeed it is, Scotty. The escort traveled past two public schools & all the students & faculty were lining the street waving flags & holding banners. I rode the Lead Flag Bike & it was so freekin cold that my eyewear froze to my face from the tears streaming down. Damn winter pollen...
You are a good man, Daksy. I mean it. The type of thing you did for this soldier is one of the things that REALLY makes me proud to be an American....
That is a poignant scene. I'm very sorry for the family, but glad that the community has been so supportive. Time to bring all our boys and gals home, alive.
Thanks for being there Daksy!
This is what the tarmac looked like when the plane landed...
Freakin awesome, I hope you don't mind, but I pirated your photo to my computer... it will be used as wallpaper!
Thank you for your service to that solider and the family.
Play for a end to these tragedies. Even the ones who get to walk off the freedom birds often have lost a part of theirselves that they will spend the rest of their lives trying to recover.
DASKY was on 236 by the town hall when you went by. Awesome display!
It's DAKSY, & thanx. I was the lead flag bike & for the most part that ride was pretty emotional, especially at the school in Mechanicville...It rained hard at about that time & I just shrugged it off. That young Marine is never again gonna feel the rain on his face, my discomfort PALES in comparison...
Daisy . . . Dasky . . . poor Daksy gets no respect . . . except for this time.
Maybe I should just go by "BOB"... Same forwards & backwards & even upside down...
Dyslexia and old age stikes again. Sorry about that
I know this is sort of an old thread, but it hits close to home for me. If anyone wants to watch a great movie, find the movie "Taking Chance". With Kevin Bacon in it, it is about a military escort for a Marine that was KIA and follows the trip bringing the Marine back home. Dasky, I am glad that you and those like you do what you do for our fallen....
ANYTHING with Bacon in it HAS to be good!
Many good warriors never make it home to there families they are the real heroes to give all for what they love. What a sad ending to a life. May there families be blessed ! It hurts to see those you love come back in a coffin. Thank you Bob boB or whatever it is !
