    A true Welcome Home to a HERO.

    Killed in action the week before, the body of Staff 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.

    Thanks Lawrence. One of the guys I went to sniper school with is a deputy over in Henry co and sent me a text about this taking place.
    An installment payment on the price of freedom and if that didn't make a person feel the pain of that payment then he or she doesn't have the right to be free.

    Thanks so much for sharing that. It means a lot to know that americans still appreciate what our troops are doing. My husband is getting ready to do his 2nd tour in Iraq in a few weeks. He was gone 15 months the first deployment and hell be gone 12 for this one. So please keep ALL the troops AND their families in your prayers...they all need it. Thanks again for sharing.

    Just now noticed his rank. A Staff Sergeant First Class. Sounds like some civilian don't know his ranks from a hole in the ground. Irregardless of the rank, the man was deserving of the observation.
