A Wake for an Indian Warrior

“He earns the American flag from his government,” says Vietnam veteran John Around Him. “He earns the eagle feather from his people.”

A pal, Shiloh, sent this to me via email. The very affecting and beautiful slide show of the wake and funeral of Marine Cpl. Brett Lundstrom, who was killed in Iraq on January 7, 2006, . RIP

Gateway has video of another soldier funeral, this time in Tennessee, Corp. Rusty Washam.

And, terribly, a third, at Michelle’s Sgt. 1st Class Chad Gonsalves.

There is so much to pray about. Let us remember these families in prayer, as well.
