"American Strength" - an American Soldier

Beth, at Blue Star Chronicles, has an excellent post entitled "American Strength." It is at once touching, sad and uplifting. Here are some highlights, but it's worth clicking over to read the whole post.

An American Soldier was laid to rest today. He was eulogized, honored and buried with full Marine military honors.

The ceremony was spectacular and heartbreaking.

It’s the extraordinary common man who holds this country together. It’s the guy who loves his country, his family, his community and his God. It’s the wife who waits for him, understands him and loves him.You probably know these people. They are probably down the street from you, living in your community.

They are the threads that make up the fabric of American society and the cloth of the American Flag.
