We take care of everybody whether they pass in theater or at home and many times a month we receive repatriated remains from JPAC who are still actively finding MIAís. We have honored a young woman who passed 2 days into boot camp and USMC 1Sgt. George Humphrey MIA 92 Years KIA on 15 September, 1918. Most but not all who are on the Honor Guard are Veteranís. I myself have never served because of an injury. The video referred to in an earlier post is actually my oldest son escorting my fatherís remains home. We will continue to honor all who serve. Thank You. Brian J. McConnell
Brian, this is truly a remarkable thing that you all do for our military men and women. You and your team are to be commended for your commitment to caring for those heroes who have served our nation. I am truly impressed and touched, as a long time DL flyer, to know that these activities are taking place at airports around the country, but especially in ATL. Thank you again and God bless!
