Funeral of a HeroLorie Byrd pointed me
to this terrific account by Matt of Froggy Ruminations
of a funeral service for a Navy Seal. Get out your hankies!Upon the dismissal of the assembly by the funeral director, the men of SDV Team ONE solemnly formed a single file and approached James’ immaculate wood coffin. One by one, each man removed his Trident from the breast of his uniform and pounded it into the gleaming wooden lid of his coffin. Dozens of golden Tridents were left shimmering in the sun to accompany James on his journey… forever.
