Today we had to pull over on the side of the road because a soldier was coming to Fort Knox to be buried. There were hundreds of motorcycles leading the way. They were riding to protect the family from anyone who might want to ruin this homecoming because of their opinions of the war. IT was so sad and so real. Motorcycle riders, Flags lining businesses, firetrucks parked on the side of the road with flags flying, sheriff cars, people stopped on the side of the road all out of respect for this fallen soldier. Very Sad. Made me think on Leif and all the people who willing go to battle for our freedom. Prayed for Michael Chandler that God would protect him. Prayed for my Uncle Jonathan, that he would his days here in the states. Made me so thankful for the sacrifices of our Fathers and our Grandfathers. We have been blessed. And we are so very thankful for each person who serves.
