For those of us who have ever served in the military, we know how the military trained us to be precise about everything. You didn’t move unless someone told you to move. The military is precise about everything, from the time of day, to what time is the best time to polish your boots.
With that said, I’m trying to tell you that when it comes to death, there is a certain way soldiers and sailors deal with grief and the passing of fellow soldiers and sailors. It’s a special kind of grief, that you just can’t explain to someone who hasn’t served this great nation. Grieving and burying our brothers and sisters is done with dignity and respect like no one can imagine.
And so, in regards to the horrible tragedy today at Ft. Hood, I leave you with this rendition of Taps.
God’s speed my brothers and sisters.
