THE FINAL SALUTE AND TRIBUTE

Postby SW RANGER » Wed Oct 02, 2019 3:14 pm

There is no room for mistakes here.

The flag-draped silver case with a soldier’s body must be carried slowly down the ramp of a U.S. Air Force cargo plane. No tilting. No slipping. The final uniform jacket worn to the grave must be wrinkle free, the pants' creases razor sharp, with all rank insignias, stripes and tiny oak leaf clusters perfectly placed. And for the surviving families who come in tears, there must bowls of chocolates and mints — and even a refrigerator full of pizza and meatloaf in a hotel-like compound.

Nothing can be left out or guessed at.
