DH and I were driving through Thomasville, GA and noticed the sidewalks lined with people with American Flags. This continued through town and into the country (driveways and yards and side roads). After a bit we found out it was for a procession for a serviceman who was killed in action in Afghanistan. His body was being escorted from Tallahassee, FL to Thomasville, GA. Law enforcement and the Patriot Guard were also involved in the escort. It brought tears to mine and my DH's eyes and we didn't speak for about 10 miles after the procession passed by us. Thank you to the families and all the servicemen that are and have served our country. We all should say a prayer for them as we celebrate our Thanksgiving meal this week.

My husband is a 100% Disabled vet who ecently hooked up with an organization called Warrior Watch and they take part in these precessional when the fallen soldiers come home. He has already done one for a fallen soldier and I had to pleasure of riding with him for welcome home for a soldier. It was great! We actually met him at his house and escorted him to a party that his family was throwing for him to welcome him home. 30 bikes - 5 decorated with flags. Police cars escorting it was just a wonderful experience I can't wait to do it again. On Thanksgiving we are going to meet soldiers from Ft. Dix who won't be home for the holiday they are taking them to a big thanksgiving dinner. My DH will be escorting on the bike and me, my boys and the in-laws will be waving flags as they arrive at the hotel.
