I wanted to share with you all the ceremony our post had for the 507 today.

First of all, it was packed. They ended up having to bus about 600 of us to the school house to watch it with all of the OBC and NCO students.

It was very nice. They gave a Eulogy for each soldier. Had a memorial set up for each of them as well. The traditional gun with helmut and Dog tags. And next to each one was a picture of the soldier with a purple heart draped across it.

After the Eulogy, they did a roll call, taps, and had the 62nd Army Band Bag pipes, and a fly over.

I was really impressed with how many people came. It is great to see the support our community is giving our soldiers, and I wish I could show all of you.

Well, that is about it for me. I hope you all have a great weekend.

That had to have been a beautiful moment seeing the out pouring of love for those who lost their lives in this war.

Prayers and hugs
