A sight I have never seen before......

Today I was headed up to the vets office (more on that later) when I hear on the radio about the Madison man, Specialist Jonathan Daniel "Jon" Menke, who was being transported from North Vernon for his funeral tomorrow. There were hundreds of people lined along the side of the roads waving American Flags. As I approached a small intersection there were fires trucks with their lights a blazing, along with 2 huge cranes hoisting a HUGE American Flag above the road. The American Flag could be seen for miles down the road. It was amazing. While on one hand, I am so thankful for the men and women who have served/are currently serving, my heart aches for the boys parents. Such a mix of emotion! It was certainly a sight to see.
