Tomorrow we will bury our 19 year old soldier that was killed in a car wreck last Saturday. I've been planning on attending the funeral and have been getting my Class A uniform ready. The Funeral Honors team is short handed and have asked if I could present the flag to the family if needed.
I knew Misty as a soldier and she was a sweet girl and being as she was only 19 (my daughter's age) and a soldier of my unit it kind of hits close to home. I would consider it an honor to present the flag and I've told them to call me if the need me to.
It is never easy burying anyone, esp one that is so young with a bright future in front of them.
