Laid To Rest

"Lance Corporal Daniel T. Morris was laid to rest today in his native soil of Augusta County, Virginia. I was privileged today to feel the fellowship of his family and Community, as we paid our last respects to this Hero."
Chris, also a Marine, tells the story with eloquence and you should check it out. Also in attendance were his fellow SWAC bloggers:
"Today, SWAC GIRL, The Journal of the Common Man, and RightsideVA played a very special role today at New Providence Church. They came early and provided/put up dozens of 3' x 5' American Flags along the walk way from the church up to the graveyard, where Daniel was laid to rest. One thing that the Marines knew today when they escorted their Brethren home was that they were in a part of the Country, that respected them and were appreciated for what they do for us all ! "
I am sure the the family and friends of Lance Corporal Daniel T. Morris greatly appreciated this. The SWAC crew has taken a lot of heat from bloggers in the past. The SWAC crew have strongly supported the war effort and the troops. They have been there for the families of those serving not only with their blogging, but with their acts. You wont read that on the lefty blogs. They will quickly publicize a military death. They will assign blame, condemn the mission, all the while claiming they support the troops. I am sorry, I don't see it. Actions speak louder than words. As Duncan Hunter recently said about the silly non binding vote:
Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA): "I don't care what you call it, a surge, an increase -- what the Republican president is doing is sending reinforcements to Iraq to carry out his plan. And if the Democrats cut off the reinforcements, the American troops will never forgive them and I think the American people will never forgive them. I think the Republican senators should be loud and clear on that issue" ("Hardball," MSNBC, 1/17).(LINK)
