If This Doesn’t Make You Cry You Have No Heart.

There comes a time as you are roaming through the Internet or old e-mails when something like this comes along and just makes you stop in your tracks and maybe if you have a heart or soul makes a tear come to your eye. God Bless America and God Bless our troops and families.

Here are three very touching photos honored this year.

First Place

When 2nd Lt. James Cathey’s body arrived at the Reno Airport ,

Marines climbed into the cargo hold of the plane and draped the
flag over his casket as passengers watched the family gather on the tarmac.
During the arrival of another Marine’s casket last year at Denver International
Airport , Major Steve Beck described the scene as so powerful: ‘See the people
in the windows? They sat right there in the plane, watching those Marines. You
gotta wonder what’s going through their minds, knowing that they’re on the plane
that brought him home,’ he said. ‘They will remember being on that plane for the
rest of their lives. They’re going to remember bringing that Marine home. And
they should.’

The night
before the burial of her husband’s body, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the
casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a
bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she
opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of ‘Cat,’ and one
of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept.
‘I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it,’ she said. ‘I think
that’s what he would have wanted’.

And
the one that really tightens MY
throat:

3rd Place
“Son, a grateful Nation……..”

Only two defining
forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.

One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET BOTH OF
THEM.
