"I would like to take an opportunity to thank and praise the many Men and Women who have offered themselves to protect and defend the people United State of America. My Father and Father-In-Law were both Veterans and I hold them near and dear to my heart. The service your family member has given is very special to Our Nation and we will do everything we can to celebrate their service and honor their life."
Bennie F. Brown Jr.

As with the military itself, our armed forces' final farewell to comrades is steeped in tradition and ceremony.
Prominent in a military funeral is the flag-draped casket. The blue field of the flag is placed at the head of the casket, over the left shoulder of the deceased. When the hearse arrives at grave site, everyone presents arms. The casket bearers secures the casket, and the Funeral Director leads the way to the gravesite. The casket bearers sets down the casket and secures the flag. The flag is stretched out and level, and centered over the casket.
After the chaplain performs the service, and before the benediction, the gun salute is fired (when appropriate). The officer in charge presents arms to initiate the rifle volley, then the bugler plays "Taps." The flag is folded and presented to the next of kin.
