Any one that has attended one knows there is a certain aura about a military funeral that is different than all others.
No funeral is a good one, but the formality and tradition of one in the many quiet places across the country is inspirational as well.
I have been to a few. They are never fun, but I always come away feeling the strength of those that are buried there that died as an intended or unintended consequence of those who sent them.
Take a minute to thank whatever god you have that they did what they were ordered to do so well. Memorial Day is a day about those who died as a result of their war. They are the ones we honor this weekend.
There is a day in November for the rest.
