A tribute to an American hero by those who count the most ... the basic American.

Killed in action the week before, the body of 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.

Be it known that there are many places in this land where people still recognize the courage and impact of total self-sacrifice.
