THE LAST FULL MEASURE

In 1979, I had the honor of escorting a fellow officer's remains home from Korea. He had died in an aircraft accident when his F4 lost a 3rd stage turbine wheel and disentigrated. At his funeral his mother came up to me and told me she knew her son died doing what he know to be right - serving his country. When I saw the president give his address, I thought of this grieving mother. When I saw him "visibly emotional" I understood in a small way the burden he carries and my heart reached out to him. Thank you for this column - well written and from the heart.
