Please Watch with Honor

I was forwarded this email. The video is about 13 minutes long, but worth every reflecting second.
Thank you to EVERY American solider whom I've had the opportunity to meet, personally know and haven't had the honor yet.
My thanks and gratitude for your selfless act could never be described in words.

Please read before watching the video, makes it more fitting.

Killed in action the week before, the body of Sergeant First Class John C. Beale was returned to Falcon Field in Peachtree City, Georgia, just south of Atlanta, on June 11, 2009 . The Henry County Police Department escorted the procession to the funeral home in McDonough, Georgia. A simple notice in local papers indicated the road route to be taken and the approximate time. Nowadays one can be led to believe that America no longer respects honor, and no longer honors sacrifice outside the military. Be it known that there are many places in this land where people still recognize the courage and impact of total self-sacrifice. Georgia remains one of those graceful places. The link below is a short travelogue of that day's remarkable and painful journey. But only watch this if you wish to have some of your faith in people restored. Please share widely.
