Returning a Fallen Soldier Home
  • On October 16, 2017 I had the honorable privilege of escorting a fallen Hero home to his family. The journey began at Philadelphia International Airport with the help of the Liberty USO. The staff with the Liberty USO were some of the most professional and caring people I have ever encountered. For those of you that do not know, the task is extremely emotional and care must be taken with each step along the way. Jennifer, Ruth and their staff took every effort to ensure the airline staff were informed and that proper honors were rendered. On behalf of the family of our Hero and all of those involved, I would just like everyone to know that when you pass through the Liberty USO at Philadelphia International Airport, you truly will be taken care of with genuine care and meet some of the best hearts along your travels. Once again, I cannot repay the gratitude Liberty USO showed to myself and my fallen brother, but there efforts should not go unnoticed. God Bless America
