I mentioned in an earlier post that we attended a military funeral in Biloxi at the Biloxi National Cemetery a few weeks ago. It was for Rob’s Step Dad’s Father, so Rob’s Step-Grandfather, Cliff. They buried Cliff and his wife’s ashes together.
Gun salute. After the gun salute, there was a recording played of Taps. It would have been much more real if it were played live.
I remember when going to Arlington National Cemetery with my grandparents growing up and of course, not feeling the full magnitude, of what I was seeing. Seeing these views, although not Arlington, it’s nothing less and the feelings were full-fledge. This area of the cemetery are soldiers that have passed most recently (2008 to present); some young, some not.
