As you celebrate Memorial Day with family and friends this weekend, please remember to honor those gave the ultimate sacrifice. My husband shared this video with me. It is a tribute to a fallen officer, Staff Sargeant John Beale, who died in the line of duty last year in Afghanistan. He was a 39-year-old veteran of Desert Storm who later joined the National Guard with a strong desire to return to military service in 2005. As a civilian, he worked for his local county water authority where he was also very involved in their youth programs. He left behind a wife and two children. This is his procession...spanning multiple communities. Truly, one of the most moving videos I've ever seen. In a time when true patriotism and support for our troops seems to be diminishing, the spirit of America demonstrated by these Georgia communities will touch your heart and restore your hope. To each and every one who gave their lives in the line of duty...thank you. May we never forget.
