Funeral detail complete

There were a few issues, but none of them stemmed from the rifle team, so I'm happy. I have a sunburn on 2/3 of my face from standing at parade rest for so long in the direct sunlight, and I think I sweat more today that I did all week.

But you know what? It's worth it to have a gentlemen from the American Legion or VFW come by and thank us. It's worth it to have the family give us that look that shows their thanks. It's worth it when you see just how important it is to the family and friends of the departed.

Rest in peace, soldier.

Day is done
Gone the sun
From the hills
to the lakes to the sky
Rest in peace,
Soldier brave,
God is nigh.
