My father passed away recently and we just had services for him the other day. He was a WWII Navy combat veteran and a Firefighter for nearly 30 years retiring as Chief of his Department. There was participation in the services from the Navy Honor Guard, The Disabled American Veterans, The Patriot Guard Riders, along with the local Police Department and, of course, his Fire Department. It was a very fitting sendoff to a great man who I considered my hero my entire life. Just though I'd share a few pictures with you.

Sorry for your loss, but that had to be a tremenously comforting ceremony for your family.

redhawker so so sorry for thr loss of your father sounds like he was a great man. I very much appreciate his WWII service fighting for our freedom. I too lost my father back in 2002. He was a WWII combat veteran who saw service in the Pacific theater of war he was wounded on Okinawa. Thank you for sharing your pictures you father was honored greatly.
