Respect.U.S. Army Major General Harold Greene was buried today at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors, including a caisson, two escort platoons, casket team, firing party, colors team, and a caparisoned horse. The U.S. Army band, “Pershing’s Own,” played softly as the funeral procession made its way down the long hill past the rows of simple white gravestones to bring General Greene to his final resting place.The graveside service began with a few words, followed by a 13-gun salute. The major general’s widow, Dr. Susan Myers, was seated in the front row. To her right was their son 1st Lt. Matthew Greene, his daughter Amelia Greene, followed by Major General Greene’s father, also Harold Greene.After three rifle volleys and the playing of “Taps,” the American flag, once placed on the major general’s casket, was carefully folded as the band played “America the Beautiful.” U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno presented the flag to his widow, and additional flags to his children and father.General Greene, 55, became the highest-ranking fatality in the war in Afghanistan after an Afghan military police officer opened fire on Aug. 5th, 2014.Some People were missing: NO President; NO Vice President; NO Secretary of State; NO Secretary of Defense. It WAS confirmed, however, that President Obama was playing golf at the time of the funeral..
for some reason Kevin Wright, with his other posts so far, makes me think he's a troll.
Anyway, Obama doesn't care about the military. He should move to Columbia if he worships the cartels so much. At least then we'd have peace. Get him out of our hairs.
I agree, Obama should have attended the funeral for this General. The response from the White House is wrong even if Hagel did attend.
I also agree Kevin Wright is a very unhappy troll. He has been warned, and any more derogatory remarks from him and I'll boot him out. His is the kind of crap that helped limit the numbers in May. These people apparently believe they are the smartest people around, but in reality they are the reason America is in the mess we are in today. A true "Useful Idiot" right out of Stalin's play book.
They're not so content now--they just can't fathom one of the "brothers", i.e., the puppet-in-chief and the commie gaggle of useful idiots, being responsible for the degeneration of their living standard. Geez, don't get me started!
And for Kyle... you find this "obviously" wrong? Was our flag at half-staff for this General? Oops, I've "obviously" confused the General's stature with that of Whitney Houston... my bad!!!
You guys should see the PM message Kevin sent me,,,,,,,,,,,,, Talk about over the top !!.
I booted him out,,,,,,, And I will boot any one else that comes here with that kind of nasty vicious crap.
I'm just like you are Regan, I'm sick of these jerks, and I'm sick of the crap coming out of the White House.
Good job, Old Rooster! Works for me..... my tolerance threshold is wayyyyyy thin now! TY TY TY! 8)
So sad for the Family. We need to get out of these countries that have no regard for the rule of law, or we quit training their troops for one.
