The Honor Guard holds
the flag over the casket throughout the ceremony, until signaled to
begin folding it.
(A Note about the casket:
This casket was designed for our military veterans by a place
called Art Caskets. It was just beautiful, with scenes all
around it having to do with Marines. They make them for all
branches of the service, and I could not resist it. Jack was a Marine
down to his soul...)
The Navy Chaplain did
a wonderful job. He asked questions about Jack, and he put the service
together as though he had known him, himself. He honored Jack
with his words, and the tone with which he said them.
The Chaplain says a
final prayer for Jack.....
The firing sqaud
fires the salute.....
The buglar plays
the Popup Window to hear
taps and to read about it's origin,
and the origin of the 21 gun
