A Hometown Welcome For a Fallen Soldier

Featured BlogHer Network Post

To honor our veterans, we present this beautiful post about a small town celebrating the life of a young fallen soldier:

"I called my sister as soon as I was back in my car. I went over the entire event with her… amazed at how silent the town had become as soon as people saw the first flash of light from the police cruiser. I was impressed with how well behaved and quiet almost 1000 middle school students were as the procession came into town. Old and young… military and civilian… all stood outside together in the fall heat waiting for the return of a fallen soldier. All stood silent with flags and hands over there hearts as tears fell from their eyes...."
