Honoring the Left Behind

I have a soft spot for military members, probably from growing up surrounded by military bases, with uniforms and maneuvers as routine in my world as flip flops.

This video touched me deeply.  I’m so thankful for the New York State Funeral Directors Association, and the Patriot Guard Riders (here, of NY, but the entire organization) who made this ceremony happen to honor veterans who otherwise would have gone unclaimed and unhonored.

This service covered remains left for decades, and touched 70 years of US military service.

Thank you, NYSFDA & the PGR.
